Printers and Microsoft's TCP/IP Port Monitoring

I found it.  This article has a lot of detail, but it does not discuss the impact(s) of turning "SNMP Status Enabled" off.

Open your printer properties, select the port and click "Configure Port."  This is the check box of which I speak:

Now I've got some testing to do ...

Based on the data in this M$ article I have cleared the SNMP Status Enabled check box and the rogue traffic has stopped.  I will test printing and provide another followup later.  Sounds silly I'm sure, but that's one less interrupt every 70 seconds on my PC ;)  I print once every 2 weeks or so.  I wasn't getting much return on my investment.  LOL
