Latest NDPS patches on NW6?

Hello all,

I'm having some issues that I was hoping a patch would solve. We currently
run NW6 SP5, the NDPS manager is version 3.01i

Can I apply the NW 6.5 NDPS patches to my current configuration?

Thanks,
Seth Longmire
  • I wouldn't suggest applying the NW 6.5 NDPS patches to NW 6 simply because these have been untested on this configuration, as well as the fact the IPPSRVR.NLM for NW 6 uses HTTPSTK, whereas the IPPSRVR.NLM for NW 6.5 uses apache (which are incompatible). By swapping out these NLMs, you can really mess up your system!

    However, that being said, I believe there is a readme file in the patch which states that the NDPSM.NLM for NW 6.5 SP5 may be used with NW 6 SP5 with the understanding that you will BREAK secure printing (i.e. any Printer Agent flagged for secure printing will no longer cause a challenge when the user installs or prints).

    My suggestion would be to upgrade to NW 6.5 SP5 and apply the patches to be on the safe side.

    I hope this helps.

    My suggestion would be to upgrade to NW 6.5 SP5 or OES.

  • That does help. thanks.

    I'm thinking the problem isn't NDPS now, though. It's an OCE 9400, and
    there have been a couple topics on it over the years, same issue:
    "LPR communication Error"

    When this shows up in NDPS Manager, I can't telnet to the LPR port on the
    printer. Which leads me to believe the printer is the cluprit.

    Thanks again.

  • Oce tech says it's not a printer problem. Says LPR doesn't send keepalive
    packets, so the server is timing out.

    Can anyone confirm, and if so, how can I stop this through NDPS? Oh and
    it's an OCE 9400-II.
