Subject: PMP> PortMon Mib question
Question/Issue from one of our dev's
For the variable ppmPortIEEE1284DeviceID, the MIB states:
The value of this object MUST exactly match the IEEE 1284-2000
Device ID string, except that the length field MUST NOT be
specified. The value MUST be assigned by the Printer vendor
and MUST NOT be localized by the Print Service.
The definitition indicates that the size is 0-255. However, the actual 1284 device ID can be much longer.
I think the length field of the 1284 string is two bytes (and the length includes the two bytes of length field).???
