Harry,

I thought our implementation was a little off because there is nothing =
in rfc1759 about prtOutputName being localized. It says that =
prtOutputDescription is localized, so I figured that prtOutputName =
should not be localized. It probably works out well since it is a string =
that is typically viewed by the users who want to know where to =
send/pickup their jobs.

Except for using Console instead of General for the default localization =
(which
is probably an oversight, misinterpretation or typo in Bob's message) I =
feel
that Bob's implementation is exactly what the MIB calls for. Does anyone =
have
an implementation that does any differently?
