Is this iPrint on OES or NetWare? Which version?

By "iPrint Printer List Web Page" do you mean <server>/ipp?

Are you looking for people to log in using their own eDirectory
credentials to access the web page or a generic username and password?

Okay you should be able to edit
/etc/opt/novell/iprint/httpd/conf/iprint_g.conf and change the
"<LocationMatch /(ids|ipp)>" section.

I'd actually suggest changing the "<LocationMatch /(ids|ipp)>" line to
"<LocationMatch /ids>" so /ids remains as was and then adding a new
section as follows

--begin--
<LocationMatch /ipp>
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
Require valid-user
AuthType Basic
AuthBasicProvider ldapdn
AuthName "<treename>"
AuthLDAPDNURL "ldaps://<server>:636/<context>???(object
Class=user)"
AuthLDAPDNRemoteUserIsDN on
AuthzLDAPDNAuthoritative Off
AuthLDAPDNAllowDNAuth on
</LocationMatch>
---end---

Replace <treename>, <server>, and <context> accordingly.

This is based on the "<IfModule mod_ipp.c" section in
/etc/opt/novell/iprint/httpd/conf/iprint_ssl.conf file.

Note the above may involve username and password being transmitted in
clear across the wire (if <server> isn't the same server as iPrint)
whereas iprint_ssl.conf uses SSL (for /ipps).

HTH.
