WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Change the SNMP trap port

Table of contents



This document shows how to manipulate and change SNMP trap port if needed. This is commonly used for security compliance by avoiding the use of common ports and replacing with other available ports. 


All Orion versions


  1. On your Orion server, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion and open the SWTrapService.exe.config file.
  2. Locate the <add key="TrapPort" value="162" /> line (most likely in line 17).
  3. Change the port number to the desired value.
  4. Save and close the file.
