I have been working with a company on an internet printing application that
prints items from a catalog in their print center. All of that is working
fine, but now they want to reconcile the print jobs with the actual counts
from their printers. So, I need to query the printer and get the page
counts periodically. It looks to me like SNMP is the way to do this, but I
have no idea how to get started.
The Application is written in VB.Net and ASP.NET. All of the printing is
done through a .NET web service. In the service I am using the WinAPI
functions to do the actual printing, so I am not opposed to using other
Win32 API calls to accommodate this. But, I do need to code this in some
Microsoft environment, preferably VB.NET or C#. I have no problems writing
the interops to any Win32 functionality, so if you have some examples in
that environment, that would be great.
So, can some kind soul point me in the right direction to get started? I'm
trying to get the MIBs for the printers (Konica 1050 BizHub and a Canon
CLC4000 with an EFI Fiery Controller), but when I do, I still have no idea
what to do with them.
Thank you very much for your time!
