Trouble getting snmptrap to work

For the life of me i cannot get snmptrap working.

created an /etc/snmp/snmptrap.conf file with the following
traphandle  . /usr/local/bin/
traphandle  default /bin/echo hello
When i run "snmpwalk -v 1 -c public hostname ." from another host I get nothing back at all. if i do it from localhost i get a timeout.
in my log file all i get is something saying its recieving data from the host.

All i want to do is have a script get a few values from mysql and then be able to query that from another box.

net-snmp 5.0.9
