How to receive link down traps



Hi, i have install the SNMP Trap Receiver in my local probe but i can't seem to get any link down trap from my switch. My switch is configured to send link down traps to this local probe. As for this sensor setting, i have key in as the OID. I simulated the link down from the switch but no traps recieve.

Any advise what is wrong?
