As previously discussed, the keywords listed for chNetwarePServer in
the current Printer MIB draft would necessitate multiple channel
entries for each file server/queue pair. The benefit of this approach
does not justify the potentially extensive expansion in the number of
channels. In addition, the server/queue pair may not define a path to
a unique printer because multiple printers may service a given pair.

The PServer name and printer number keywords, as used for the
chNetwareRPrinter channel, do provide a unique identification of the
printer channel. I request that, starting on page 37 of the
draft-ietf-printmib-mib-info-01.txt document, PrtChannelTypeTC information
for chNetwarePServer be changed to the following.

chNetwarePServer(10), -- Novell, Inc
-- prtChannelInformation keywords:
-- Print Server Name
-- Keyword: "PServer"
-- Syntax: Name
-- Status: Mandatory
-- Multiplicity: Single
-- Description: The PServer's SAP name
--
-- Printer Number
-- Keyword: "Printer"
-- Syntax: Integer
-- Status: Mandatory
-- Multiplicity Single
-- Description: The number identifying the
-- specific printer, of the several printers
-- that may be served by identified PServer
--
-- NDS Tree
--
-- Keyword: "NDSTree"
-- Syntax: Name
-- Status: Mandatory
-- Multiplicity Multiple
-- Description: The NDS Tree SAP name
--
-- NDS Queue
--
-- Keyword: "NDSQueue"
-- Syntax: Name
-- Status: Mandatory
-- Multiplicity Single
-- Description: The name of the queue
-- object in the associated NDS Tree.
--
-- There must be exactly one Pserver and
-- one Printer, or exactly one NDSTree
-- and one NDSQueue Entry
