Hi Steve,


I'm having a bit of trouble developing the algorithm to resolve
the first printer registered in a HR MIB device table, and I
was hoping you could help me out.


My understanding of hrDeviceType is that it should contain an OID
describing the type of device, and that for a printer, this value
should be:  1.3.6.1.2.1.25.3.1.5


Is this correct?


My recent testing indicates that at least two printer vendors are
setting the OID value as:  1.3.6.1.2.1.25.3.2.1.2.1


Since both vendors report the same value, I'm thinking that perhaps
I am misunderstanding the situation.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!


	...jay
