    Hi Juergen,

    Oops! Good question. I would say use the Marker row specified by
    'prtMarkerDefaultIndex' in the 'prtGeneralTable'.

    But we sure ought to specify this in the descriptions of the two
    'prtInterpreterTable' columnar objects. Right?

    Further, it's not meaningful (and SHOULD NOT be done) to have
    different addressability units for different markers or
    interpreters in the same instance of the Printer MIB, in
    my humble opinion.

    Cheers,

    Subject: one more printer mib question

    The descriptions of prtInterpreterFeedAddressability and
    prtInterpreterXFeedAddressability say:

    prtInterpreterFeedAddressability OBJECT-TYPE
        SYNTAX Integer32 (-2..2147483647)
        MAX-ACCESS read-only
        STATUS current
        DESCRIPTION
            "The maximum interpreter addressability in the feed
            direction in 10000 prtMarkerAddressabilityUnits (see
            prtMarkerAddressabilityFeedDir ) for this interpreter. The
            value (-1) means other and specifically indicates that the sub-
            unit places no restrictions on this parameter."
        ::= { prtInterpreterEntry 8 }

    prtInterpreterXFeedAddressability OBJECT-TYPE
        SYNTAX Integer32 (-2..2147483647)
        MAX-ACCESS read-only
        STATUS current
        DESCRIPTION
            "The maximum interpreter addressability in the cross feed
            direction in 10000 prtMarkerAddressabilityUnits (see
            prtMarkerAddressabilityXFeedDir) for this interpreter. The
            value (-1) means other and specifically indicates that the sub-
            unit places no restrictions on this parameter."
        ::= { prtInterpreterEntry 9 }

    Which instance of prtMarkerAddressabilityUnits do I use for a given
    prtInterpreterFeedAddressability or prtInterpreterXFeedAddressability
    instance?
