Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS) was developed to improve Novell's legacy queue-based print server architecture and to allow for better handling over the increased complexity of network printer management. To take advantage of the many benefits of NDPS, such as better device management and use of printer capabilities, we developed snap-ins for the Novell NDPS Gateway.
The NDPS Gateway snap-ins allow configuration of printers and multi-functional products so that they seamlessly integrate with Novell's NDPS architecture and NWAdmin. The NDPS Gateway snap-ins functions as an interpreter between Novell's NDPS and the printer's network card allowing printer information to be understood by NDPS.
Users of the NDPS Gateway will have less challenges setting up their printers and will gain the ability to 'drag-and-print' documents.
Network Administrators will have more control over printers on the network through real-time status information, the capability to impose strict client access rights, and many more features, which are listed below.
