swFCPortName 1.3.6.1.4.1.1588.2.1.1.1.6.2.1.36
Supported in Fabric OS v4.1.x and later. A string that indicates the name of the addressed port.
NOTE
The names should be persistent across switch reboots. Port names do not have to be unique within a switch or within a fabric.

The traps are sent in SNMP V2 format. NetView for Windows does not display SNMP V2 traps. It has no code to interpret them, so they will be discarded. How can you tell if you are getting V2 traps? Well, you might see error messages in \usr\ov\log\nv.log about traps being discarded.

you can download a free tool off the web. It's called the Ethereal packet analyzer and it's available from http://www.ethereal.com. It installs easily in about five minutes. Then you can set a capture filter for "udp and port 162" and see what is being sent to the MS Trap Service. The packets will be nicely formatted.
