Where to find New iPrint Client versions?

Last I have is iPrint 6.10

Used to go to download.novell.com and search for iPrint but even with logging in the latest seemed to be 5.98

Is there a new home or way to stay current with latest iPrint Client??

Looking thru post it seems there may be a v6.12

I like to install latest when rolling out a new machine, start it off with everything current and updated.

Hi,

The latest client should be available in the "Patches" area of the downloads website. Look there and let us know if you don't find it.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Technically this is correct except later iPrint clients are seemingly
now only available as part of the larger iPrint Appliance patches and/or
OES Updates available for download. Previously later iPrint client were
available as stand-alone updates.

There are two aspects to the above:

1) if you have kept your iPrint Appliance and/or OES server patched
up-to-date then theoretically you should have the latest version of the
iPrint client available via the iPrint Appliance and/or OES server.

For example, the December 2017 update for OES 2015 SP1 provides iPrint
client 6.12 to which you refer but the iPrint 3.1 Patch for the iPrint
3.0 Appliance provides iPrint client 6.15.

Note that it's possible a later client requires later server-side code
so you may need to update both client and server at the same time.

2) as I just noted in my reply to Laura, Micro Focus (Novell) no longer
provide stand-alone iPrint client updates for download.

However it is possible to extract the later versions of the iPrint
client from those patches (if you are entitled to access the iPrint
Appliance and/or OES Server updates).

a. Download the relevant novell-iprint-client RPM and copy it to a Linux
machine (can be a physical server, VM, etc. but needs to be Linux)

b. Use rpm2cpio and cpio utilities to extract the contents of the RPM
without having to install it

"rpm2cpio novell-iprint-client-*.noarch.rpm | cpio -idmv"

c. The above will create the directory structure of the
novell-iprint-client RPM in your current directory and you should find
the various iPrint clients within var/opt/novell/iprint/htdocs/clients.

HTH.
