Having grown exhausted of repairing Windows machines at my campus that had
grown unstable under the weight of Novell's various windows clients, I
have designed a system entitled DoxPrint that uses Samba and Novell for
Linux to proxy prints from Winboxen to Netware Print Queues without any
special software on the client side. In addition to eliminating stability
worries, DoxPrint eliminates the ability of login scripts to provide
backdoor root access to attached machines--not too important for
businesses, but mission critical for educational environments. Further
features include automated printer installation, closest-printer redirect,
print policies, and more.
