    Netware 65SP8 - iprint parameters for printer attached to server port lpt1 or com1

    Iprint on NW65SP8 works fine for a printer attached to the network by a printserver.
    I'm looking for the parameters for iprint to install a printer on the local lpt1 or com1 port of the server.

    can you add the machine locally in Printers in the control panel, then afterwards go to your browser and browse to iPrint on your server and download the client.

    I found more info, and tried the following (but the server crashes)

    I created 2 printers via iManager/iPrint/create Printer
    1)pr-lan-1 : for printer attached to the network via Intel Netport printserver (IP = 192.168.7.97)
    This results in a gateway configuration =
    "NDPSGW PORT=LPR HOSTADDRESS=192.168.7.97 PRINTERNAME=LPT1_PASSTHRU"
    The printer is visible on the ipp server page, can be installed on a XPPSP3 workstation (with iPrint client 5.60) and works fine

    2)pr-srv-lpt1 : for printer directly attached to the lpt1 port of the server (HP XW6000 with NSBS65SP8 IP = 192.168.7.51)
    Via iManager/iPrint/create Printer I cannot select the local LPT1 port so I choose some simple or default values
    This results in a gateway configuration =
    "NDPSGW PORT=LPR HOSTADDRESS=192.168.7.51 PRINTERNAME=PASSTHROUGH"
    On the serverconsole I used the NDPSmanager screen/configuration to modify the printer(agent)pr-srv-lpt1 . Here I can select the Novell Gateway , Novell Port Handler and finally the LPT1/IRQ7 . I saved the configuration and unloaded and reloaded the NDPSM.
    Via iManager/iPrint/Manage printer I checked the pr-srv-lpt1 : gateway configuration = "NDPDS"
    The printer is also visible on the ipp server page and can be installed on a XPPSP3 workstation.
    By testing the printer it went wrong : i tried to print a test page .. nothing happened ... print again, ok page printed. Tried to print a document (IE8 printscreen of a website), nothing, print again, ok page printed. I switched several times between printing of the test page and the document ... finally the server crashed
    It seems the NDPSM loads the PH.NLM & NDPDS.NLM to support printing on the server lpt1 port. Maybe this (old) PH.NLM makes the server crash ?

    I found some related info
    NDPSM Loads Very VERY Slowly
