I can only second that!

Just one more reason to avoid those boxes ;-).

That's exactly the reason why extensible SNMP deamon frameworks have been
developed. SMUX is available for centuries now and AgentX has come to
replace it. Both meachanisms are available for the UCD/NET SNMP deamon. On
AIX, SMUX is available by default. I wonder why Checkpoint/Nokia doesn't
want to use this. RFCs are there for a reason :-)
