Iprint and WordPerfect

I know that WordPerfect is not a good idea, but working for a school board...

We are running Iprint on a oes2 sp1 server

our users have iprint client 5.30.00, and are having difficulty printing when using WordPerfect. It seems that anything else prints fine.

it all worked fine with ndps.

It would of course help if you gave some more information on your setup, like the client OS you are using as well as a clear description of your problem symptoms rather that just saying that you have difficulties printing.
In any case, some applications, especially older ones, may have problem with the long pritner names that you have for iPrint printers by default. For this reasons, and also to make the printer names more user friendly, you should always use the short install name option. See the documentation at the following like for more details:

We're a government agency and have a large installed base of wordperfect. I've found that the print engine in WP has a need to contact every printer that is installed on the machine prior to presenting the print options dialog. So, the more printers you have, the worse it gets, especially when using iPrint. To get around it, we had to install local TCP/IP printers to speed up the process. At minimum, having one TCP/IP printer per machine that was set to the users default hepled.

I know it defeats the purpose of using iPrint, but it did help us.
