Package: snmpd
Version: 5.7.3+dfsg-1.7
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When snmpd is run with a listening address on the command line (in my case
this is and that listening address specifies a non-default
port, snmpd will listen on both and The
expected behavior would be that it is only listening on the endpoint
specified on the command line.

Kind regards,
