I'm trying to implement the bsnmpd service on one of my machines.

In rc.conf I have:

# run the bsnmpd daemon, with debugging
bsnmpd_enable="YES"
bsnmpd_flags="-c /etc/snmpd-test.config -d -D dump"


In hosts.allow, very near the top, I have:

bsnmpd : ALL : allow


Here is the diff of the sample config file versus my own:

# diff -u /etc/snmpd.config  /etc/snmpd-test.config

When I start bsnmpd, I get

# /etc/rc.d/bsnmpd start
Starting bsnmpd.
snmpd[5474]: send: Connection refused
^C#

What is causing the "Connection refused" message?  The freebsd-questions 
archive 
yields no hits on "snmpd AND refused" nor "bsnmpd AND refused"



# sockstat | grep bsnmpd
root     bsnmpd     5482  3  udp4   127.0.0.1:57050       127.0.0.1:162

root     bsnmpd     5482  8  dgram  -> /var/run/logpriv


I am also seeing a timeout error when trying to connect to query the
bsnmpd daemon, but I won't worry about this until the "Connection
refused" message goes away.

# snmpwalk -c public localhost
snmpwalk: Timeout



Thank you!
