I second the recommendation for net-SNMP. It also provides most of the functions for Microsoft Windows that it does for Unix-type environments. Code generators and related utilities are far less automatic than many commercial products, but the quality and flexibility are high. There is a set of tutorials and you can run many of them against yourself in 'localhost'. 'net-SNMP.org' is careful that their license makes it easy to use the code in commercial or non-commercial products, more BSD-style than GPL-style. Look around the web for handy tools - many are graphical using Tc/Tkl. The RedHat RPM installs a fully functional host-platform agent (net-SNMP or its older version ucd-SNMP) in RH Linux systems that you may wish to play against. A huge number of MIB elements are supported and you can interrogate the machine to spit them out to you. If you would like good quality, moderately priced code generators, MIB browsers, and test agents for Microsoft Windows, look into MG-SOFT (www.mg-soft.com) products. DISCLAIMER - I'm about a year away from this and there may be better things available.
