Using the NDPS Gateway

This section contains instructions on printing using Novell Distributed Print Services® (NDPS®) with Novell® NetWare® 5.x/6.0. Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS) is the new generation print services of NetWare.


Banners cannot be printed with NDPS.

The Status Monitor 3 utility cannot be used with NDPS.

Bind the IP or both IP or IPX protocols on the NetWare server that runs NDPSM.NLM and EPSONGW.NLM.

Check the following points before starting.

Install the appropriate client software, such as Novell Client 3.3 or higher for Windows 95/98/Me or Novell Client 4.8 or higher for Windows NT/2000, on client workstations. Make sure they install NDPS.

When you use the print server with Bindery (either in the Print Server mode or the Remote Printer mode), you need PCONSOLE.EXE to create bindery objects such as Print Server and Print Queue objects. Since PCONSOLE.EXE does not come with NetWare 5.x/6.0, you need to get the file from Novell.
