This dialog box lets you set up network printers and queues that can be shared by users in the selected container. This includes creating a Print Server, Printer, and Print Queue object, and loading the required server and driver software.

Prerequisites

The printer is physically connected to the network or a server or workstation on the network.
You are logged in as ADMIN or equivalent.

Steps

1. In Print server name, type a name for the Print Server object, or choose the browse button to choose an existing Print Server.

For a new Print Server, make sure you follow standard object naming conventions.

2. Under Printer in Name, type a name for the new Printer object.

Make sure you follow standard object naming conventions.

3. In Type, choose the type of communication used by the printer.

If the printer is attached to an OS/2** workstation or directly to the network, choose Other/Unknown. Examples of this type are HP IIIsi, Compaq** PageMarq** 20, GENICOM 7170, and Talaris 1794 Pr

Yes, you can use your novell file server as a print server. You can attach the printer directly to the server or use nprinter to use a printer attached to a workstation. I will explain attaching directly to the server. First run pconsole and use thequick setup option. Define your printer, print queue and print server.

Example, if you called the print server ps1, you would type, load pserver ps1. You will also have to edit your autoexec.ncf once you are sure your pinter is up and printing and enter the load command for pserver so it loads automatically. Make sure it is exactly the same as what you typed at the console prompt. If possible bring the server down and back up to see that ps

Yes you can do both. If you set up a external print server be sure to follow Print server directions. The emulex brand has a specific naming convention (for Example). As to the detailed instructions. Go to Novell's web site at Http://www.novell.com/documentation Here you can get the documents to Netware 4.11 that have complete installation proceedures. Hope this helps.
