PMP> Updated "What to bring" list for Printer MIB InterOp Testing

As we continue to prepare a detailed test plan, we may come across
items that we need to add to this list. When this happens, I will update
the list and send it out to you again (with the addition marked with a
vertical bar '|').

Here is the complete (as far as I know it) list of what to bring for
each printer company to the InterOp testing:

1. Printer with Ethernet 10 Base-T inferface.
2. Notebook computer with Windows 95 and an Ethernet 10 Base-T
interface card with the TCP/IP stack installed.
3. One optional feature in a particular category for the
printer.
What I mean here is that if you have 4 optional input
trays for this printer that are essentially identical
then there is no need to bring all 4. However if you have
an optional feature that feeds paper and another optional
feature that feeds envelopes then you should bring both.
If you have optional memory features for your printer of
4MB and 8 MB then there probably is no reason to bring
both features but you should at least bring one of them.
4. Supply items (for example, toner cartridges) that are
nearly empty (to test "low" warning alert conditions).
5. Supply items that are empty (to test "empty" error alert
conditions).
| 6. Capability of changing paper sizes for a single input source.
| We need to be able to test how a printer handles a
| configuration change and changing paper size appears to
| be the easiest thing to do across all printers. We will
| not be printing on a different size paper (so you do not need to
| bring different sizes of paper) just make sure that you
| bring whatever is required for your printer to recognize
| a change in paper size.
