       straps - A simple SNMP trap multiplexer.


       straps [ port ]


       The straps trap daemon listens on the snmp-trap port (usu­
       ally port 162/udp) for incoming SNMP trap or  inform  mes­
       sages  and  forwards  them  to all connected clients (like
       scotty). The optional port  argument  allows  to  use  the
       straps  daemon to forward messages received on a non stan­
       dard SNMP trap port. However, port numbers below 1024 will
       be rejected.

       Clients  connect  to  the  straps  daemon  by  opening the
       AF_UNIX domain stream socket /tmp/.straps-port. Thus,  the
       default    AF_UNIX   domain   stream   socket   is   named

       Received messages are forwarded using the  following  for­

              4 byte    IP  address  of the sender (network-byte-

              2 byte    Port number of the sender  (network  byte

              4 byte    Length  of  the  trap message (host-byte-

              n bytes   The trap message itself.

       The straps daemon must be installed  setuid  root  because
       normal  operating systems require root permissions to open
       the standard SNMP trap port  162/udp.  The  straps  daemon
       rejects  all  port  numbers below 1024 in order to protect
       the system security.
