IPP page question

Hello,

I am using iPrint on OES 11 (latest SP). I have two of my smaller buildings using the same Print manager. Is there a way for each building's users to only see their building's printers when they go to the IPP page to install a printer of is this not possible since they share a Print manager? If this is not possible it is OK, I just wanted to ask.

Thanks,
Andrew

No, it is not possible with current oes11 iprint version but it has been
a request for long time so:

1. Appliance 3.0 has a new /printer portal that replaces /ipp page and
you've got the option to make printer visible to the users you want:

https://www.novell.com/documentation/iprint-appliance-3/iprintfeatures/data/iprintfeatures.html#b1fruthi

2. Current iPrint for OES2015sp1 (different product that OES iprint you
currently have) has appliance 2.1 capabilities so not yet the new portal
but iPrint for OES 2018 will have appliance 3.0 capabilities so probably
the new portal as well.


3. You can hide the /ipp page and use a different method to install
printers as ICM or iprntcmd command
