Yes, I did look at snmpy.  And was instantly scared off by the obvious
need to hack about with the C module to get it to compile on Win32.  I
haven't even been able to get net-snmp itself to compile on Win32 - I
tried to follow the net-snmp readme about compiling it with cygwin and
just ended up in a world of pain.  The thought of doing the same for
snmpy brings me out in hives.

For better or for worse, I don't come from a UNIX / C background and
so while such things may be straightforward for some, they're not for

Thanks anyway,
