    Ira and Ray,

    Thank you for your comments. I will define the sizes as follows:

    1. for finDeviceAssociatedMediaPaths: (SIZE(1..63))

    2. for finDeviceAssociatedOutputs: (SIZE(1..64))

            Ron

    Hi Ron and Ray,

    These two bit-masks represent values of the Printer MIB v1/v2
    objects 'prtMediaPathIndex' and 'prtOutputIndex', both of
    which have a SYNTAX of 'Integer32 (1..65535)'. A bit
    array of 255 octets can represent '(1..2047)'.

    I suggest that these objects be made exactly 63 octets
    (like all the other strings in the Finisher MIB), so that
    they can represent '(1..511)'.

    I'm concerned that Ron's shorter suggested lengths may
    actually break some existing implementation (of the
    Printer and Finisher MIB).

    Also, my email address at Xerox will be going away within
    two weeks. After that, folks can reach me by telephone only
    at 608-257-0466 (work/home in Madison, WI) until April 2002.

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald

    Ron,

            Your definitions look fine.

            My only thought would be in the distributed printing
            environments (where multiple devices are chained together)
            that might get close to these numbers. My experience isn't
            in this area so I can't say if these types of systems are
            viewed as a single "printer" or if they are each
            viewed separately.

            Also, as a side note. My Xerox e-mail address will be going
            away shortly.

            I can be reached at my companies address at:
            RayCasterline@lhsolutions.com

    Regards,
    Ray Casterline
