DocuPrint NPS/IPS on a Novell network
Supporting DocuPrint NPS/IPS on the file server
In the following illustration, the queue, remote printer, and virtual
printer are configured with the same name, and the specified
printer is set to print duplex. The user sends a print job through
the LPT1 port to a queue named DPDuplex that is sent to the
DPDuplex, and assigned to DPDuplex virtual printer.

There are a number of tasks you perform on the file server to
support the DocuPrint NPS/IPS as either a print server or a
With DocuPrint NPS/IPS as a PSERVER you must allow
unencrypted password login on the file server. Enter the
following command at the file server console prompt and in
the AUTOEXEC.NCF file:
set allow unencrypted passwords=on
NOTE: Set this command even if you do not establish a print
server password. Novell clients that use encrypted
passwords are unaffected by this change and will continue to
use encrypted passwords.
Do not configure the file server to support IPX checksums or
NCP packet signatures. Set these options to equal 0 or 1 so
that the server performs these options only when the client
requests them. The default value is 1.
Do not set the watchdog interval to less than one minute.
Longer intervals may cause the DocuPrint NPS/IPS to be
If the print queue contains 250 jobs on a regular basis, set
the Maximum File Locks Per Connection to a value greater
than 250. The default value is 250.
Define forms using PRINTDEF with names matching virtual
printer names. (Applies only if DocuPrint NPS/IPS is
configured as an RPRINTER.)
