    When I telnet to my Netgear router 'ps' shows that snmpd is running.
    It doesn't however respond to any snmpget requests and 'nmap' shows port
    161 as closed.
    I can't find an snmpd.conf file on the router so I don't know where the
    community string is stored or even if the conf file is necessary.
    I recently upgraded the firmware to V4.01.40 if that is relevant.
    Any ideas?

    I think you may have found it;

    'nmap' shows port 161 as closed :)
    Open it up for UDP and the job's a good'un.
