Please - will people stop just saying 'in the MIB'. Only Ivan has
spoken precisely enough in this thread (by always saying either
'HR MIB' or 'Printer MIB' explicitly) to make his meaning clear.
And since you all three (Ivan, Ron, Dennis) just quietly _disagreed_
because of obscurity about what's a 'port' and what's 'static' in a
configuration, let me try once more.
- Status in Longhorn TcpMon comes ONLY from Host Resources MIB
- Ports in the 'ppmPortTable' should NOT be deleted when
the software/hardware status of a 'port' changes
- because the Longhorn TcpMon tool will only read the
'ppmPortTable' _once_ (to find 'hrDeviceIndex' values)
- Configuration (but NOT status) in Longhorn TcpMon comes from
- All 'ports' that have the same 'hrDeviceIndex' will always have
the same displayed status in TcpMon
Ron and Dennis - please let's not waste time on discussing how
the Printer MIB was meant to be used. The Printer MIB isn't even
in the logic path for 'port' status in Longhorn's TcpMon.

dated March 21, 2005
TcpMon will use the hrDeviceIndex to query for the printer status from Host
Resource MIB and to query for the printer configuration from the Printer MIB
(support for new features in Longhorn OS).
