Anyway, I have released my tool to the internet and several hundred
people have downloaded and are using it. To my surprise, it seems to be
rather popular. I thought all of you people working on the common
printer MIB might be interested in seeing it and working with it.
It was written in C++ under Linux but people have told me that they
have been able to get it to run without too much hassle under:
Solaris 2.5.1 and 2.6
HP/UX 10.2 (this port is still a bit shaky)
A web page describing it can be found at
http://www.penguincomputing.com/prtools/npadmin.html and the source
can be downloaded from
I am very interested in hearing what all of you think. I am also quite
open to questions, comments, suggestions, and patches whatever.
