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>

[cbeckley]: I have several questions about it's future development. But it seems like a lot of code to put in a sopw.
[cbeckley]: Should I put the module and example calling code in cufp, and then ask questions in sopw?
[haukex]: You can put it in SOPW, but use <readmore> tags
[haukex]: Also you might want to label it "code review"
[haukex]: Unless you have specific questions, in which case SSCCE's are much better
[cbeckley]: Excellent, thank you.
