Moving NDPS printers from one server to another
I have a netware 6.0 server that services my ndps printers ( has broker
and manager. I would like to temporarily move these printers to a netware
6.5 servers. This Netware 6.5 server has its own broker and manager. I
want to be able to move one printer at a time and be able to use the moved
printer without shutting down the manager running in the source server.
Any suggestions will be greatly apprciated.

Hi I have been working for about a year now to implant iprint for
automated printer installation on our network...
My project is well prepared and I'm almost done...
Previously, we made a wizard made with Auto-it using rundll32
priintui.dll for those insatllations. This clever little wizard is still
used to automaticaly install NDPS printers. But the maintenance of this
home made application is very complex. So we decided to go with

Ok, I did something foolish-- implemented a quick fix I found here in
the forums or elsewhere to solve an immediate problem and didn't

the original source for the info--may have been the old forum, which
is now history.
anyway, the setup is this:

Having trouble with a NDPS printer. I can't run NDPS Manager because
hangs on initializing the printer. Can I delete the NDPS printer
and see if the NDPS manager comes up? I know that deleting the object
only makes it a public access printer but will it let the manager boot
at least. Your help would be appreciated, thanks!
Making the printer a public access printer makes no difference
regarding the manager. he will still try to load the agent.
How about restoring the ndps backup ?
See this TID that descibes the steps.

I have a unique situation where a user with WinXP needs to have two
printer icons on their PC because one printer driver works better for

applications. Rather than have the user change the driver each time

can push these details to the workstation as per your selection. In my case
I will need to set the default paper size to be A4 paper and this printer

So, I reinstalled Nwclient 4.91sp4, this time making sure that NDPS
was not selected for installation. Then I rebooted, removed the NDPS
printers manually and installed the Windows printers.
After the next reboot, NDPS seemed to reactivate itself and delete all
my windows printers and reinstall all the NDPS printers. Needlessly to
say, that was a lot of work wasted.
