Sending SNMP Traps in AIX / Unix

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone knows how can I send an SNMP Trap in Unix Environment(AIX) to another machine (NT/Ux) after having activated the SNMP in the AIX.
Can this be done by using a single command line or do I have to write a script for it?
Thanks in advance for your advices.

The open source distribution of SNMP has command line utilities. One of those is an snmptrap() command line utilitiy, as I recall. This is what I have used in the past.
