NDPS Client deinstallation required =?


we want to distribute the iprint client, and now ist is required, to
deinstall the NDPS components, that comes up with the nwclient
installation for all the workstations?

is it possible on the workstation to crate a local printer on lpt1?

It is not required to remove the NDPS client in order to use iPrint.
Keeping both for a time to ease the migration might actually be a good
idea. Just make sure you don't create conflicting configurations like
using RPM (Remote Printer Management) in NDPS to remove all non NPDS
pritners and at the same time use ICM (iPrint Client Management) to remove
all non iPrint printers.

You mean sharing a locally attached pritner over the network with iPrint?
The following procedure can be used in such a case:

However it might be easier to buy a cheap network pritner server box and
attach the pritner to it, or laternately, simply share the printer as a
Windows printer.

hm....

i think some user must have a local printer attached to the workstation on
physical LPT1 port.

i think it is not possible to distribute it via iprint. isnt it.

so the local physical printer from the workstation mus be installed via
zenworks, for the user to use. i am right ?

OK, now I see.

You are right. iPrint does not manage locally attached printers.

ZENWorks would probably be one possible solution.

OTOH you can capture lpt1 to network printer with iPrint. So if local
printer is not necessary for, lets say, security reasons and reason to
use local printer is that there is some old program that prints directly
to lpt1 you can use that to send printjob to network printer instead.
