Is this OES or the iPrint Appliance? Which version and how up-to-date?

Please post the contents of /var/opt/novell/iprint/htdocs/iprint.ini.

Re: Iprint client won't auto update on workstation

Simon
Gross works for me and I asked him to post this. Since he is now on vacation
I will supply the info. Previously under Netware we never had an issue with
the autoupdate client. Knowing to use the proper client with the silent
option and renaming it and putting it in the proper directory. Since
migrating to OES this process is no longer working.

OES11.2 sp2 all patches as of a week ago.

[Novell] ;Do not modify this section
NovellWinVersion = 438 ;This is set by Novell, Inc.
NovellWinVer2K = 438
NovellWinVerXP = 438

;** NOTE **

;This option is used only on NT4/2000/XP/2003

;The option lets you display a shorter

printers

name..

;DEFAULT = The installed name on client will

; for the installed printer's UNC server
name.
; Use only lower ASCII characters:
