By default Autosys uses 162 port number to send SNMP traps. However when you want to change the port number. You may have to change snmp-trap and snmptrap port number in services file.

For example in Linux
services in /etc/services
[autosys@XXXXXX-XXXXetc]$ cat services|grep snmp-trap
snmptrap        162/udp         snmp-trap       # Traps for SNMP

You have to replace 162 port with the respective port and bounce Scheduler services.
