Unix print spooler
Posted on 1997-06-19
Can anyone recommend a suitable print spooler for Sco Unix?
Perhaps this is a common gripe. There are bound to be some alternatives for giving users(and administrtaors) which privide some easier control over print jobs (ie.priority, queue access, preview, abort job, pause, etc..)
I am aware of two possible products (EasySpool and PSPool) but maybe there are others that could be recommended.
We operate Sco-Unix (3.2.4?), soon to upgrade to OpenServer V, in conjunction with NT 3.5, moving soon to 4.0. Although we currently have some Wyse terminal access, via terminal servers, most users access both systems via PC (using emulation s/w for Unix access). Printers are connected to both hub and terminal server, with some of the Unix printing being ported through the NT print manager.
