Changing what shows as the Name of the printer

I wonder if you can change what shows when someone looks at their list of
printers.

I have just started to dabble with iPrint so bear with...

In windows, under Printers and Faxes my users see:
PrinterName on ipp://serverip

Trivial, but I'd rather not show the server ip address. The server name
might be better if something like that has to be there.
How would I facilitate that change.

Or better yet, just have the PrinterName show up on the List. Is there a
way of accomplishing this?

Thanks

In the iprint.ini you can set the SHORTINSTALLNAME to whatever you want
(make sure it is different on each server that you host print on). This
will create nice, short names.
