Novell Distributed Print Services 2.1
How do you convert from third-party NDPS gateways to the Novell SNMP gateway?
Not all third party vendors are listed in the PACvrt tool. For example, Konica Minolta is not listed. Converting a Printer Agent's Gateway Autoload Command from a third party vendor to the Novell Gateway can be accomplished by following the steps below. With large numbers of PA's it would be quicker to have PACvrt do the conversion, but the steps listed below accomplishes the same thing as PACvrt:
a. Go to Novell Remote Manager (https://[IPorDNSofPrintServer]:8009
b. Go to NDPS Manager Health (link on left frame)
c. Click the link for a Printer Agent in the list
d. Click the Configuration Options link
e. Modify the Gateway Autoload Command to
NDPSGW PORT=RAW HOSTADDRESS=[x.x.x.x]
NDPSGW PORT=RAW HOSTNAME=[someDNSname]
f. Click Apply
g. Click the Back button in the browser and go onto the next printer.
After you have made the changes, restart the Print Manager.
NOTE: Novell does not support servers running third party gateways. The Novell Gateway can connect to any network printer that listens on ports 515 or 9100.
