Help with NDPS printing

Hello,

I just installed NW 6.5 and I wanted to setup NDPS. The company has all
their printers setup q-based. Does anybody have an idea of how to start
this process?

Thanks,

John

Help with NDPS printing

A good place to start is by going to www.novell.com/iprint Look in the
product info link on the left, then deployment guides. There is one
detailing moving from queue based print..

This would be a good place to start, just to begin to understand what is
needed. A lot of the moving to NDPS depends upon how fast you want to
move. An advantage with NDPS is that you can set up NDPS to service the
queues that your clients (workstations) are currently captured to. NDPS
services these queues similar to the way PSERVER does. HOWEVER, this
would require you setting up a NDPS Broker, NDPS Manager, and a printer for
each unique queue server or printer you currently have.

Doing this allows you to migrate the backend to NDPS, then at your pace
migrate clients to NDPS. THere is also the possibility of migrating from
queue based printer to iPrint printing. iPrint printing is basically NDPS
printing on the Server, with an IPP listener to handle IPP requests from
clients. There is the ability to have the iPrint client automatically
migrate queues right to iPrint printers.

Hopefully this is a good place to start. Also, look at the documentation
on implementing iPrint on Netware as well as the NW6.5 (OES) iPrint
printing for Netware.
