[Snort-users] snort is not sending traps

I'm in the middle of pounding through an SNMP config
of snort for my work, and while I'm in no position to
tell you how to do everything correctly, I can say
that tcpdump in the middle has helped tremendously. 
It seems that when I fix one thing I accidentally
break something else so at least I know when
*something* is going to my test nms.

BTW did anyone else notice that the documented syntax
for the SNMP setup in snort.conf is wrong?  The -p
option gives an error and I saw no mention of a -c. 
Either this slipped thru the cracks or my New Year's
eve in Amsterdam is still muddying my thinking. :-)
