Ron -

Thanks for such a prompt response to my query about
the PrtMarkerSuppliesSupplyUnitTC for the Finishing MIB.

The changes which you have indicated in the Printer MIB
will address our needs perfectly.

Thx again...

Paul,

The updated Printer MIB includes many additions to support the
Finisher
MIB in prtMarkerSuppliesTypeTC. The curent text is:

PrtMarkerSuppliesTypeTC ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
-- This value is a type 3 enumeration
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"The type of this supply."
SYNTAX INTEGER {
other(1),
unknown(2),
toner(3),
wasteToner(4),
ink(5),

inkRibbon(7),
wasteInk(8),
opc(9), -- photo conductor
developer(10),

}

This should satisfy your request. Note that these values are
approved and
can be legally used with the publication of a new MIB.
