I believe you can configure the agent on that server as a proxy to receive those SNMP traps and then configure the application to send them locally (to 127.0.0.1 or ‘localhost’). The local agent will then pick them up and react to them just like any other rules or monitors would have. The SNMP traffic would never actually leave the server and thus no firewall rule would be necessary.

Check this link for more information about how to set up an SNMP receiver:

I have never done this, so I could be way off base here, but at least it’s a start. Report back here on your success or failure and we’ll continue to work on it if needed.
