NW 65 SP2 - how to convert LPR printers to Port 9100 printers?

Using Novell gateway and LPR printing for all printers - currently HP & Xerox.
I understand from the docs and the groups that port 9100 is now supported in SP2 but I do not see anything in the docs on how to convert a printer set up LPR over to a port 9100. Do I have to delete and recreate the printers? (ack..)

Here:
http://www.novell.com/documentation/nw65/index.html?page=/documentation/nw65/iprint/data/aj77pp3.html

the feature gets billed at the top of the page.. but there is no link to follow. Searching the 6.5 docs on iPrint did not help.

Anyone converted over?

Thx - Joe

If You have all ndps/iprint updates in place you must change pa load
cmd:
from NDPSGW PORT=LPR HOSTNAME=name.domain.com PRINTERNAME=L1
to something like this: NDPSGW PORT=RAW HOSTADDRESS=172.17.4.3

In imanager place is managePrinter->configuration.
You must restart this particular printer after cmd changing.

load ndpsgw produce usage.

Hey "full name", where did you find this out? Also, what exactly is
meant by "port 9100 is now supported"?

Does that mean it supports native HP printer mode? Does the gateway then
get access to more detailed hp printer status info? And if using a
multi-port jet direct, how would we reference the printers on each
individual port?

Thx!

Info is in UPDATED (postsp) documentation. Generaly.
Posible cmd line can be dicovered with load ndpsgw HELP
If you crete new printer, you can select "port 9100", to modify existing see
previous message.
It is hard to tell about "native mode", but I have in use HP printers
without LPR support.
Unfortunately it is not posible to specify port as 9100, 9101 etc. untill
now only "RAW"==9100 is supported.
