Okay - making progress. I installed the snmpd package (apt-get install
snmpd), then manually started snmptrapd. I had previously edited syslog.conf
to accept remote connections. Now snmp traps are going to /var/log/syslog
I'm getting records for both inbound and outbound connections, so that's a
start. Also saw two pages on logging from Linksys routers. One is
linksysmon, the other sets up a specific log file for LinkSys and rotates,
So - will play around a little tomorrow to pull the Linksys logging out of
my syslog and into a specific log file. Will need to find a tool to read the
log, but at least have a starting point.
Next question: how do I make sure snmptrapd is set to start automagically?
