Dumb iPrint Question

With iPrint on Netware users could print to printers using either the iPrint client -or- the NDPS portion of the Novell Client for Windows.

With iPrint on SLES/OES this doesn't seem to be an option. Users are forced to use the iPrint client.

Is their a way to use the NDPS "client" to print to iPrint servers hosted on a SLES/OES box?

Thanks!

No. Novell's NDPS uses a series of proprietary Novell protocols to print.
These protocols have only been implemented on NetWare servers. Novell has
never ported the NDPS protocol to Linux.

If you face a NetWare to OES/Linux migration and you still are using NDPS
printers, then the typical migration path is to first distribute the
iPrint client to your workstations and configure iprint.ini such that the
iprint client automatically converts NDPS printers to their equivalent
iPrint printers. Once all your pritners are iPrint, you can then migrate
to OES/Linux.

Thanks for the tip. I'll have to try that out.
