Netware Networked Printer -- how.

Hi, folks.

Here's the thing -- We've got a network printer with a que on a Netware
3.x server. I can print using nprint, but I wanted to see if I can
configure it for use within applications. I run printtool, but it only
provides nfs and smb, not ncp. Or am I wrong?

How do I configure it to use with little pain?

I have the same environment.
Simply create a Q for the printer using the print tool that comes with
Also apply the appropriate IP address and that should be all you need.

To be able to print from the Apps you need to give it the full path to the
print Q.
i.e. if you named the printer HP4, the command would be
lpr -PHP4 "NO its not a typo, you must apply the capital P" or may be this
is only in my case.


1. Openserver printing to Netware networked printers

I have a customer who has added an SCO Openserver 5.0.4 box, running a
medical billing software, to their office.
They currently print a large volume of pre-printed forms to an Epson DFX-5000
dot matrix printer on their Netware 4.01 server.  I originally thought of using
an HP JetDirect or Emulex print server to allow printing from both systems
(Netware & SCO) but would instead rather just print to the Netware queue from
the SCO server.  I have seen this done on an earlier SCO version at another
customer site but have never set it up myself.  My contact at that site is not
available right now.  How hard is this to set up and will the result be
reliable and
supportable?  The current printing environment is very stable.  Thankyou in
advance for your support.
