39 and solaris I think that my chances of success will be much better.
41 11-12-1998: Ben Wodoard <email@example.com>
42 Pretty much swung around to petter's viewpoint on how to make it more portable
43 put in the const patch and the getopt patch. Made a missing config.h.in. const
44 patch still needs some work though. I need an autoconf option for it. Took
45 out the line that trys to add snmp to /etc/services.
47 11-9-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
48 Announced 0.6.4 on freshmeat a couple of days ago and got quite a few responses.
49 Finally merged in some of damian's patches as well as quite a bit of work done
50 by Petter Reinholdts to get ports working for HPUX and IRIX. Also added the
51 infostructure to add objects from the private mibs. Decided that there were
52 enough changes to call this 0.7.
55 10-5-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
56 Bugs fixed:
57 --alerts time now works properly. Had order of subtraction reversed.
58 Features added:
59 Now appears to work on a solaris boxes.
61 9-29-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
62 Bugs fixed:
63 --supplies asserted out when tektronix returned some out of bounds type and
65 --printmib and --hostmib didn't register properly on a Color Laserjet 5.
66 Features added:
67 made the alert time appear in the number of seconds from the unix epoch
68 rather than from the printer startup time. This way we can display the time.
70 9-21-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
71 Bug fixed:
72 --status returned a 2 exit value when you tried to use it on a HP 4 series
75 9-16-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
77 Ain't it just the way. The day after you do a release you discover a bug and
78 and a feature you need.
79 Features added:
80 --display now works on HP 4 series printers. Forgot that I would need this
81 feature when writing pquedisp.pl. Another nasty HP specific hack.
82 Bugs fixed:
83 --version now works. The code for this had somehow disappeard.
85 9-15-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
86 Features added:
87 --status and it even works on older HP's
88 Bugs fixed:
89 Fixed more bugs that were causing it to not report properly for any of the
90 protocol breakouts.
91 Brought a few places up to current printmib specification so that a it
92 wouldn't assert out on the 4500.
93 Changed the bits for the set flags because they didn't take into acount the
94 three reserved bits.
95 Fixed the way it determines what optparams to stick the parameter's option
97 Made it so that 8100's are recognised as modern printers.
99 Discovered that setcontact doesn't work on the 5si printers but it does work
100 on the 4500. Suspect that it is a bug in the 5si firmware. Called HP and
101 they added to my previous case HP case#1420924269
102 Decided that --connection should be an undocumented probably broken feature
103 beacuse I can't seem to get it to work properly.
105 9-14-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
106 Bugs fixed:
107 Fixed a bug that caused it to not properly report port 9100 available status
108 Previously fixed several bugs with the connection parameter but it still
109 doesn't work. The problem seems to be the printers faulty implementation of
110 the tcp table. I put a request in with HP to fix this at least on the 4500
111 which should fix it for the rest of the EIO equipped units.
112 Features added:
113 Added the --help option especially for adam.
115 8-27-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
117 I discovered that the problem with --languages crashing 5M and 5N printers is
118 a bug in HP printers not this program. HP case#1420924269
120 8-26-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
121 Bugs fixed:
122 Tiny bug in write_debu_bin where the parameter was only a char and the value
123 that was being passed into it could easily exceed that.
125 Discovered that --languages crashes 5M and 5N printers.
127 8-15-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
128 Bugs fixed:
129 Parameters that had arguments such as sets were not working. Optional values
130 were not being set.
131 Set_req_tag not correct.
133 8-14-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
134 Dang I need to remember to write in this file more often.
135 Features added:
136 Support for QMS printers (not much since they don't provide much)
137 Support for Some small xerox printers.
138 Added timeout for damian a while ago.
139 Added optimization in the makefile a while ago
140 More modular code. Made the main function a lot simpler.
141 Bugs fixed:
142 Fixed the problems with optimization and the old g++ compiler.
144 7-31-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
145 Bugs fixed:
146 SNMP log corrupted when doing --netconfig --debugsnmp k2-opsteam
147 IPaddr's were backward in snmplog
148 Made it so that strings print out non printable characters in hex.
149 Fixed a problem where it wasn't listening to sequence numbers. This made
150 it so that the SNMP library would occasionally be confused. Two identicle
151 packets were sent and then a different packet. The reply to the second of
152 the identical packets was misinterpreted as the response to the second
153 query. Also table lines were sometimes repeated.
154 Fixed a problem where the lenght of a sequence wasn't being recalculated
155 properly after something was extracted from it. This showed up when a host
156 didn't report a default gateway and we tried to resubmit the shortened
159 7-30-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
160 Hmm. Haven't edited this file in a while. Plenty has changed. This is what I
161 can remember.
162 Features added:
163 --debugsnmp now also puts a hex dump in the snmplog file
164 configure script now correctly determines if the compiler needs the
165 -fhandle-exceptions option
166 Bugs fixed:
167 Now works on big endian machines. (phew that was tough)
168 Spurrious asserts due to IPaddr's length not being set properly fixed.
169 Spurrious crashed due to decode_status fixed.
170 Known bugs:
171 Sure no shell escape characters get passed back
172 On xerox time too large in alert table make it work.
173 Model and vendor for QMS printers
175 Make --shell option
176 List when a protocol or other entry is enabled.
177 Firmware revisions
178 Reboot printers
179 How was a printer's IP info configured
180 make it so that you can coorelate the time and the alert
181 make the code more object oriented. Get rid of these linked lists and use
182 a template container class STL?
183 make RPM's
184 make the scripts that turn to put this on the web.
186 6-19-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
187 Features added:
188 The ability to set variables to the snmp library
189 The ability to have options that have parameters
191 Bugs fixed:
192 Fixed a bug where it put the man page one level too far down.
193 Fixed a bug where it crashed when you gave it an hostname it couldn't lookup.
195 6-17-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
197 This is the first beta release of npadmin a tool for working with
198 network printers. Right now it is designed to be used in shell scripts
199 to query information about a network printer. In the future it will
200 also be able to set variables in network printers. It is primarily
201 designed to work with printers that support RFC 1759. It was developed
202 on RedHat Linux 5.0 and tested with the following printers:
203 HP 5si
204 HP 4000
205 Lexmark Optra S 2450
206 Lexmark Optra SC 1275
207 Lexmark Optra N
208 Xerox Docucenter 230 SE
209 Tektronix 560
212 better error state passing between the library and npadmin
213 figure out how the printer's IP address was configured.
214 Is this a printer
215 firmware uploader
216 take out asserts
217 make it possible to set variables
218 printout modes html, human, shell
219 verbosity switches
220 range of ipaddr
221 filter out alerts
222 find printers on subnet
223 64bit clean
224 Do marker colorant table
