Hi folks,                                    Wednesday (19 January 2005)

Based on recent comments from Tom Haapanen (Equitrac) and review at the
PWG in Camas, WA, I have just posted a new draft (with a status of
'Prototype') of the PWG Printer Port Monitor MIB at:
    - full text - PWG boilerplate, introduction, model, references
    - MIB source only

This MIB compiles without warnings in both Epilogue Emissary and SMICng.

Next Steps:

(1) Mike will put this document into MS Word and add more to the
    'Background' section.
(2) We'll start this document in PWG 'last call' ASAP (no later than
    15 March 2005).

- Ira

[change log - moved to source document from MIB]

19 January 2005 (v0.50)

- changed back 'Status' of document from 'Stable' to 'Prototype', to
  allow further comment before 'last call' version is generated;
- revised 'Security Considerations' section to clarify risks of SNMPv1
  reliance on community names, per IETF best practice;
- revised 'Acknowledgments' and 'References' sections;
- renamed 'ppmPortLprQueueName' to 'ppmPortServiceNameOrURI' for support
  of IPP and remote printers, per request of Tom Haapanen (Equitrac);
- added 'ppmPortProtocolAltSourceEnabled' for alternate source port mode
  (for example for LPR), per request of Tom Haapanen (Equitrac);
- renamed 'ppmPortProtocolPortNumber' to 'ppmPortProtocolTargetPort' for
  clarity and consistency with above change;
- revised DESCRIPTION of 'ppmPortProtocolTargetPort' to specify behavior
  in case of conflict with the URI value of 'ppmPortServiceNameOrURI'
  (URI is authoritative);
