"Random networks" really is too big a topic for email list discussions.

Two programs in the software Stocnet available from

can be used to generate random networks according to some specific random graph distributions:

ZO for graphs with given degrees and directed graphs with given in-degrees and out-degrees, if desired also with given number of mutuals;

SIENA for exponential random graphs with a variety of specifications; and for generating random repeated observations of networks developing according to actor-oriented models with given initial network observation - also according to a variety of specifications.
