How to configure a print server and print queue on a NetWare 4.x server using NDS to work with a Canon networked printer
(pserver NDS)

Having problems browsing the tree or having the server login. Try here

There are other ways of doing this but I find this the easiest.

Login as a user with admin rights to the NDS tree

run pconsole.exe (usually in SYS:\public directory)

at the top of the screen it should read:
Context : <current context>
Make sure you are in the right context before you continue, if you are not, arrow down to :
Change Context and do your thing.
If/when you are in the right context then highlight Quick Setup and hit enter

The highlighter should be across from the Print server:
just start typing in the name of the new print server and hit enter (the name is arbitrary)
example GP200PS

arrow down to New printer and type in the name of the new printer. Hit enter (again the name is arbitrary)
example GP200P

arrow down to New print queue and type in the name of the new queue. For more information on naming the queue see the bottom of ipx.html
Example GP200PQ_hold

arrown down to Print queue volume: and enter the volume you want to use
example server_name_sys

arrow down to printer type and select Other/Unknown

press Esc and yes to save changes?

Is this way too much fun or what.  Now you need to configure your printer to use these settings.
