This is not, *technically* SNMP, as it is not using it's assigned ports.
This is a variant, and interestingly, that port is assigned to

              empire-empuma   1691/tcp    empire-empuma
              empire-empuma   1691/udp    empire-empuma

Unless Sysedge is the decendant of "empire-empuma", it doesn't belong
there either
Unfortunately, the odds of this kind of newbie being able to
successfully utilize it are slim.  Still, if he is going to ask for
help with odd packets, he must be able to document them, and this is
the standard way to do so.

Oh, I get it.  So if root executes "sshd -p 45522"  --this is not *technically* ssh, right?  Learn that at MCSE school? 
 ;o) Heh heh.  Just kidding.  But really, precisely what protocol does it become on port 45522?  What if the only 
"Listen" directive in my httpd.conf says: "Listen 45580"?  Is it *technically* not an http server?  And you're flaming 
newbies?  Come on, Alif.  Give the guy a break, will you?  He'll learn to ask the right questions, and give you what 
you need to help him.  Someday we're gonna need this guy to help the newbies that come after him.  Do we really want to 
teach him that the way to do that is through insults and abuse until the newbie asks the questions the way HE wants 
them asked?  You're a better man than that.  You've been around a long time, and it's easy to take ALL of that 
experience and knowledge for granted.  You know who that often sets up unreasonable expectations of the wide-eyed does 
just coming up.  When Mr.muthanna tried to help, and !
 corrected you, he did it with class and a genuine interest in helping.  I applaud him for that.  Billybob is looking 
at his external interface and trying to figure out who's trying to get in, right?  So he's at least headed in the right 
direction.  Let's support that instead of stomping on him for being new.  The people to flame are the lazy, 
windows-licking dumbasses who aren't asking for help.

I hope all is well with you, and often wonder how you're doing.

Additionally, Sysedge is an SNMP Management Product marketed by (Concord)Empire Technologies, and it does belong on 
port 1691.

buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel 
of American resolve.  America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in 
the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.  Today, our nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature. 
And we responded with the best of America— with the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and 
neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could."
