iptables -I INPUT -m udp -p udp --dport 161 -s ! -j DROP
iptables -I INPUT -m udp -p udp --dport 162 -s ! -j DROP

then save them somewhere, for instance /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall or /etc/rc.d/rc.local, so that they are not lost on a reboot

These rules are for systems that have a default ACCEPT policy. If on the other-hand you have a default DROP policy on your system try the following rules instead:

iptables -I INPUT -m udp -p udp --dport 161 -s -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -m udp -p udp --dport 162 -s -j ACCEPT
