I have a client who I think is filtering SNMP communication to some print devices. I have a software on their server that relays on SNMP communication. All of the issues point to this communication. Can you please tell me how I can configure the filter in wireshark on there server to collect SNMP communications to all my print devices and nothing else. I need to collect as much information possible.

To see only SNMP traffic, please use the capture filter

udp and (port 161 or port 162)

Don't filter on the print devices in the first place. You can do that much better with display filters later and maybe there are some interesting details in SNMP queries going to other devices than the printers!
