The syntax of prtConsoleDisable is currently defined as:


prtConsoleDisable OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX     INTEGER {
                   operatorConsoleEnabled (3),
                   operatorConsoleDisabled (4)
               }


This is a list of enumerated values but the MIB does not specify
which type (1, 2 or 3) they are. I believe that the MIB should
specify that these are "Type 2" enumerated values.


Along with this clarification, I recommend that
operatorConsoleEnabledLevel1 (5), operatorConsoleEnabledLevel2 (6)
and operatorConsoleEnabledLevel3 (7) be added.


The reason this change is needed is to allow printer consoles to be
enabled with limited sets of features.


The Description field currently reads:


DESCRIPTION
        "If the object prtConsoleDisable has value
        'operatorConsoleDisabled' then input is not accepted from the
        operator console. If the object prtConsoleDisable has the value
        'operatorConsoleEnabled' then input is accepted from the
        operator console.
        "


It would need to be changed as follows:


DESCRIPTION
        "If the object prtConsoleDisable has value
        'operatorConsoleDisabled' then input is not accepted from the
        operator console. If the object prtConsoleDisable has the value
        'operatorConsoleEnabled' then unlimited input is accepted from 
        the operator console. If the object prtConsoleDisable has the 
        value 'operatorConsoleEnabledLevel1',
        'operatorConsoleEnabledLevel2' or 'operatorConsoleEnabledLevel3'
        then limited input is accepted from the operator console; the
        limitations are product specific, however, the limitations are
        generally less restrictive for operatorConsoleEnabledLevel1 than
        for operatorConsoleEnabledLeve2, which is less restrictive than
        operatorConsoleEnabledLevel3.
        "
