The SNMP port is 161/udp. As for security concerns you must accepting
some sort of risk for the external hosts you are allowing in, I don't see
why this would be any greater.

SNMP (RFC 1157)
uses port 162/udp as well for SNMP Traps ....
check out http://www.internic.net get a copy of RFC 1700.
or better ....
to search them by number or keyword ;)
then there is http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/hypertext/information/rfc.html
These are all better than the old "nic.ddn.mil" ftp/kermit site ;)
p.s. if you allow snmp polling to pass in through your firewall, limit what
machine's can do so, I wouldn't want "evilhost" to query or poll my snmp
devices for information...
