I wanted to know if anyone has an idea of what ports snmp uses.

The reason why i'm asking is we have a dell omsa server on a different
network to all the clients, and the traffic need to go through a firewall.

Do you know what ports need to be opened to allow this traffic to pass, I
know snmp used udp/tcp 161, but it seems that when a snmp request is sent to
the omsa server it is using a number of different ports, ranging frpm 25000
to 35000.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
