iPrint client problem

Question for you guru's out there? I have just implemented NDPS/iPrint
for a
customer of mine. They want to control access to certain printers. I
have
found that if you secure all printer (via SSL) you can control access.

However, upon the first install of a printer the iPrint client
requires
login (fully qualified, i.e.: .username.ou.o). This is creating a
problem
because user's don't know their fully qualifed login. Do you know of
any way
to pass the fully qualified login information to the iPrint client? Or
do
you know of a workaround or something that I don't?

Re: iPrint client problem

Haven't heard of a way for client32 to pass the login info (hey,
Novell,
this would be nice) to the Iprint client.

Workaround: You could create a generic 'printer' login ID
(cn=printer1.ou=whatever..., password=print), that certain users or
the
helpdesk (someone) would have an easy time remembering. After that
there is
a checkbox for 'remember my passord'.

Be sure to block port 631 at the firewall for your unsecure printers.
Peace,
John
