Rename printer and/or change IP address

Netware 6.5.6

Hi Folks,

Can someone lead me to the light? I"m looking for the proper method to change a printer name. Am I correct that I should use the re-name object option in iManager? Does he iprint client then do the uninstall/reinstall thing once that's completed and the PC reboots. How about change printer IP - possible without recreating it?

Thanks,
Tom

You should be able to rename the printer from the manager console as
well. And the IP address or DNS address changes should also take effect.
Usually this doesn't require a reboot, but at least a print request to
kick it off.

Thank you. Do I change IP in the load string only?

The address in the gateway load string only effects the way the Print
Manager communicates with the Printer. This is transparent to the user.
The ip address/dns name referred to here was that being used on the server
hosting the print manager. If this changes, the iPrint client receives a
302 redirect. Keep in mind however that this is limited to changing ip
address to dns name or visa versa. If you change the ip address altogether
to something different, there is no way the iPrint client can resolve this,
mainly because it will be attempting to talk to an old address that no
longer exists.. This is why it is good to use DNS names, then just make
sure the DNS name is resolving to the correct server..
