    This topic was discussed at the Jan PWG meeting. An example of where
    "Unavailable and OnRequest" is an appropriate status would be when the
    printer has received a print job that requests a media size which in not
    currently loaded. In this case, the printer implementation may flash a
    message on the opPanel indicating that the desired media should be loaded.
    Until such time as the new media has been configured and is available for
    printing, the printer could expose status "Unavailable and OnRequest".

    Hope this helps answer your question.

    Hello everyone,

    I signed up with the mailing list today at the recommendation of someone
    responding to a question I had posted in the comp.protocols.snmp
    That being said, here's my question:

    I've got a quick question about the SubUnitStatus described in the Printer
    MIB (RFC 1759) on page 24. Specifically, I'm trying to find out what the
    difference between "Unavailable and OnRequest", "Unavailable because
    and "Unknown".

    I'm pretty sure I understand what "Unavailable because Broken" means, but
    I'm just seeking some clarification because I'm not entirely certain where
    "Unavailable and OnRequest" would be used.

    -Thank you-

    Patricio Aguilera
