in thread Getting statistics from an attached device (printer)

SNMP::NPAdmin is one of the several modules that I am investigating (and the most promising, by the way). Unfortunately the PPM installation failed and when I used the manual approach (nmake) it broke on the space in "Program Files"*. I will pursue the installation issue when I return after the holidays. In the meantime, I think I will install Wireshark on my laptop and give it a test drive.

If anyone has any ideas about how to determine which MIB is used by this printer, I'd really appreciate it. My efforts have been unsuccessful thus far and I will need the variable names (or OIDs) to make calls to NPAdmin.

*This is a huge pet peeve of mine, given Windows' finicky shell quoting and the difficulty of third party software to handle it correctly. Why "they" decided to put a space in the name of the root directory used for programs is beyond me.</rant>
