Getting Data In

Listen a port (162) and receive an SNMP notification

I have a problem, What I want to do is this: In short I have a remote machine that will send me SNMP notifications to my local machine the configuration of the remote machine is done now I need some kind of log in my local machine that notify me that I received an SNMP trap . Maybe listen the 162 por is good idea (SNMP port by default) But I don't how to do it and where I can read this log if my machine received something.

For example I added a port to be listened and it seems like splunkd is listening but how can I see what's listening?

[root@laptop etc]# netstat -tulpn | grep :1000
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:1000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 30994/splunkd
