    Here is my initial set of comments on the draft Print Port Monitor MIB.
    This is based largely on our experience of developing port monitors (and
    equivalent modules on other platforms) to communicate with a myriad of

    So, in no particular order ...

    - Shouldn't the ppmPortTable include a URI object for IPP printers?
    Otherwise there is no way to know how to connect to an IPP device. What
    about SMB share names or AppleTalk names?

    - For LPR devices, I would like to see an object that specifies whether the
    device accept source ports outside the RFC range. Most devices, but not
    all, do today, and this can really help throughput with small documents.

    - What would be the expected behaviour if there are multiple ports of the
    same type? For example, Fiery controllers typically have three LPR queues
    -- would it not be beneficial to be able to publish all three, and to
    describe their behaviour?
