29 * Added reboot option
30 * Removed a bunch of options that don't work out of the man page.
32 Sun Nov 22 1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
33 * Changed over to automake using automake actually tried it on HPUX
34 and solaris I think that my chances of success will be much better.
36 11-12-1998: Ben Wodoard <email@example.com>
37 Pretty much swung around to petter's viewpoint on how to make it more portable
38 put in the const patch and the getopt patch. Made a missing config.h.in. const
39 patch still needs some work though. I need an autoconf option for it. Took
40 out the line that trys to add snmp to /etc/services.
42 11-9-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
43 Announced 0.6.4 on freshmeat a couple of days ago and got quite a few responses.
44 Finally merged in some of damian's patches as well as quite a bit of work done
45 by Petter Reinholdts to get ports working for HPUX and IRIX. Also added the
46 infostructure to add objects from the private mibs. Decided that there were
47 enough changes to call this 0.7.
50 10-5-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
51 Bugs fixed:
52 --alerts time now works properly. Had order of subtraction reversed.
53 Features added:
54 Now appears to work on a solaris boxes.
56 9-29-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
57 Bugs fixed:
58 --supplies asserted out when tektronix returned some out of bounds type and
60 --printmib and --hostmib didn't register properly on a Color Laserjet 5.
61 Features added:
62 made the alert time appear in the number of seconds from the unix epoch
63 rather than from the printer startup time. This way we can display the time.
65 9-21-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
66 Bug fixed:
67 --status returned a 2 exit value when you tried to use it on a HP 4 series
70 9-16-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
72 Ain't it just the way. The day after you do a release you discover a bug and
73 and a feature you need.
74 Features added:
75 --display now works on HP 4 series printers. Forgot that I would need this
76 feature when writing pquedisp.pl. Another nasty HP specific hack.
77 Bugs fixed:
78 --version now works. The code for this had somehow disappeard.
80 9-15-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
81 Features added:
82 --status and it even works on older HP's
83 Bugs fixed:
84 Fixed more bugs that were causing it to not report properly for any of the
85 protocol breakouts.
86 Brought a few places up to current printmib specification so that a it
87 wouldn't assert out on the 4500.
88 Changed the bits for the set flags because they didn't take into acount the
89 three reserved bits.
90 Fixed the way it determines what optparams to stick the parameter's option
92 Made it so that 8100's are recognised as modern printers.
94 Discovered that setcontact doesn't work on the 5si printers but it does work
95 on the 4500. Suspect that it is a bug in the 5si firmware. Called HP and
96 they added to my previous case HP case#1420924269
97 Decided that --connection should be an undocumented probably broken feature
98 beacuse I can't seem to get it to work properly.
100 9-14-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
101 Bugs fixed:
102 Fixed a bug that caused it to not properly report port 9100 available status
103 Previously fixed several bugs with the connection parameter but it still
104 doesn't work. The problem seems to be the printers faulty implementation of
105 the tcp table. I put a request in with HP to fix this at least on the 4500
106 which should fix it for the rest of the EIO equipped units.
107 Features added:
108 Added the --help option especially for adam.
110 8-27-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
112 I discovered that the problem with --languages crashing 5M and 5N printers is
113 a bug in HP printers not this program. HP case#1420924269
115 8-26-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
116 Bugs fixed:
117 Tiny bug in write_debu_bin where the parameter was only a char and the value
118 that was being passed into it could easily exceed that.
120 Discovered that --languages crashes 5M and 5N printers.
122 8-15-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
123 Bugs fixed:
124 Parameters that had arguments such as sets were not working. Optional values
125 were not being set.
126 Set_req_tag not correct.
128 8-14-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
129 Dang I need to remember to write in this file more often.
130 Features added:
131 Support for QMS printers (not much since they don't provide much)
132 Support for Some small xerox printers.
133 Added timeout for damian a while ago.
134 Added optimization in the makefile a while ago
135 More modular code. Made the main function a lot simpler.
136 Bugs fixed:
137 Fixed the problems with optimization and the old g++ compiler.
139 7-31-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
140 Bugs fixed:
141 SNMP log corrupted when doing --netconfig --debugsnmp k2-opsteam
142 IPaddr's were backward in snmplog
143 Made it so that strings print out non printable characters in hex.
144 Fixed a problem where it wasn't listening to sequence numbers. This made
145 it so that the SNMP library would occasionally be confused. Two identicle
146 packets were sent and then a different packet. The reply to the second of
147 the identical packets was misinterpreted as the response to the second
148 query. Also table lines were sometimes repeated.
149 Fixed a problem where the lenght of a sequence wasn't being recalculated
150 properly after something was extracted from it. This showed up when a host
151 didn't report a default gateway and we tried to resubmit the shortened
154 7-30-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
155 Hmm. Haven't edited this file in a while. Plenty has changed. This is what I
156 can remember.
157 Features added:
158 --debugsnmp now also puts a hex dump in the snmplog file
159 configure script now correctly determines if the compiler needs the
160 -fhandle-exceptions option
161 Bugs fixed:
162 Now works on big endian machines. (phew that was tough)
163 Spurrious asserts due to IPaddr's length not being set properly fixed.
164 Spurrious crashed due to decode_status fixed.
165 Known bugs:
166 Sure no shell escape characters get passed back
167 On xerox time too large in alert table make it work.
168 Model and vendor for QMS printers
170 Make --shell option
171 List when a protocol or other entry is enabled.
172 Firmware revisions
173 Reboot printers
174 How was a printer's IP info configured
175 make it so that you can coorelate the time and the alert
176 make the code more object oriented. Get rid of these linked lists and use
177 a template container class STL?
178 make RPM's
179 make the scripts that turn to put this on the web.
181 6-19-1998: Ben Woodard <email@example.com>
182 Features added:
183 The ability to set variables to the snmp library
184 The ability to have options that have parameters
186 Bugs fixed:
187 Fixed a bug where it put the man page one level too far down.
188 Fixed a bug where it crashed when you gave it an hostname it couldn't lookup.
190 6-17-1998: Ben Woodard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
192 This is the first beta release of npadmin a tool for working with
193 network printers. Right now it is designed to be used in shell scripts
194 to query information about a network printer. In the future it will
195 also be able to set variables in network printers. It is primarily
196 designed to work with printers that support RFC 1759. It was developed
197 on RedHat Linux 5.0 and tested with the following printers:
198 HP 5si
199 HP 4000
200 Lexmark Optra S 2450
201 Lexmark Optra SC 1275
202 Lexmark Optra N
203 Xerox Docucenter 230 SE
204 Tektronix 560
207 better error state passing between the library and npadmin
208 figure out how the printer's IP address was configured.
209 Is this a printer
210 firmware uploader
211 take out asserts
212 make it possible to set variables
213 printout modes html, human, shell
214 verbosity switches
215 range of ipaddr
216 filter out alerts
217 find printers on subnet
218 64bit clean
219 Do marker colorant table
