Using Vista client on Win7

Using Vista client on Win7 PC to attach to Novel 6.5 server, quite a lot works, but installing printers presents a problem.

For starters, the client install no longer offers NDPS as an install feature, which makes it difficult to add Controlled access public printers to the client. Are we supposed to download and install something else on the client to provide those services?

You will have to switch to iPrint. NDPS does not and will not exist on
anything newer than XP.

Make sure to read the posts in the iPrint forum with regards to Windows
7 support. You'll have to install the latest iPrint patches to your
iPrint server for iPrint to work on a Windows 7 PC.
