Moving from Queue Printing to NDPS/iPrint

Ok long time Red guy who just happens not to like printing that much. My
problem is I believe in the old tenant of "If it ain't broke to use duct
tape." So queue based printing has been working fine for the 9 years I
have had it running.

Anyway the company is moving from queue based printing and would like to
move to NDPS instead of LPR/Direct IP printing. I have searched the
documents and to be honest there is nothing out there that is just a
straight step process for moving to NDPS and iPrint other then
installation of the services and loading the broker and manager nlm's. Of
course I could be blind as a bat also but still would like to see a
twelve step program or something of that nature. Anyone out there have
some advice on the best way to tackle a 1800+ print enviroment

Re: Moving from Queue Printing to NDPS/iPrint

Sorry for the delay in replying, but the NetWare documentation is a
good place to start. If you have more specific questions along the
way, we are here to help.

What version of NetWare are you running?

Here are some links for various version:

NetWare 5.1:


NetWare 6:


NetWare 6.5:


Even if you have NetWare 6.5, you might find some of the older
documentation useful with regard to the transition from queue-based
printing to NDPS/iPrint.
