SNMP probers

Data from our site would include a certain bi-coastal router vendor
(who is not Cisco) that likes to use one of our class B networks for
"internal testing purposes", and occassionally leaks their SNMP
testing out to the Internet.

Our solution was to block SNMP access from non-local sites, regardless
of community string. It doesn't prevent the routers from logging the
access violation, but it does prevent the remote prober from getting
any useful information.
