Could you possibly send the man page and the web help page
as attachments to this list?
I'd like to understand exactly how the SNMP discovery backend

I wrote the Xerox and Sharp corporate standards for order
of inspection of various SNMP MIB objects during printer
discovery (prior to the standard PWG Port Monitor MIB)
and there are some subtleties across different vendors.
