If you enter an IPX address as a trap destination when installing SNMP service, the following error message might appear when you restart your computer:
This occurs when the IPX address has been entered incorrectly, using a comma or hyphen to separate a network number from a Media Access Control (MAC) address. For example, SNMP management software might normally accept an address like: 00008022,0002C0-F7AABD. However, the Windows 2000 SNMP service does not recognize an address with a comma or hyphen between the network number and MAC address.
The address used for an IPX trap destination must follow the IETF defined 8.12 format for the network number and MAC address. For example, the following format is valid, where xxxxxxxx is the network number and yyyyyyyyyyyy is the MAC address:
xxxxxxxx . yyyyyyyyyyyy
