In NetWare 5 and 6, you can create public access printers using the NDPS Manager on the server console. To do this, bring up the NDPS Manager by loading NDPSM. Then go to the Printer Agent List window and press <Insert>. Enter a name for the Printer Agent that represents the printer. Go down to the Configuration Utilities field and press <Enter> to view a list of gateways. Pick the appropriate gateway.

If you are sure that your printer has a gateway, but it is not on the list and the gateway .NLM is in the SYS:SYSTEM directory, do the following:

  • Create a controlled access printer using NWAdmin or iManager, and select the appropriate gateway.

  • Configure the Printer Agent as desired, then delete it from the tree.

The Printer Agent will now become a public access printer.
