Remove NDPS client

Is it advisable to remove the NDPS component of the Novell client when you
move to iprint? Would one have to completely remove the client and delete
the NDPS directory (I see it does not do that by default) then reinstall the
client? Does iprint use the NDPS folder (c:\ndps) at all?

Remove NDPS client

You can leave it on the box, but it will of course eat up processor and if
a printer name can't be resolved it will also go through timeouts. So, I
would recommend removing it if it isn't a big hassle.

I think you can just remove the ndps client by itself?

Leave the NDPS directory alone, cuz the iPrint client uses it as well.

Re: Remove NDPS client

OK, I did try to uninstall the NDPS client by reinstalling overtop the
Novell Client (nwsetup) and unchecking the NDPS component, but that actually
did not remove it. I had to uninstall the client, reboot and then reinstall
the client without the NDPS checkbox. A bit tedious to be sure, anyone know
of a better/faster way?

If you go into network properties in Windows I believe you can simply
uninstall NDPS from there while leaving the rest of the Novell client in
place.
