I have administrative authority on the pc but when i uncheck the banner page and form feed settings then click ok, a quick check reveals that my choice was ignored.  This problem cropped up when we migrated from Netware 3.11 to Intranetware 4.1

I'll assume you're doing this on Win95.  This is a known bug with Win95.  The only way I've found to get rid of them is to capture the port in the login script using the NB and NFF switches at the end of the capture command.

This occurs in NT 4.0  Capturing is active in the login scripts but it would be better to print directly to the network queues.

Isn't there a selection on the server to disable these items by default?  I think the server is overriding the selection you make locally.

Of course, if you need either of these option for other stations, this won't work.

I've always disliked Novell's way of printing.  Gotta admit though, it is quick!

The Intranetware server is not establishing the banner or form feed for my workstation.  None of the control options on the IntranetWare Settings tab of the printer properties dialog box appear to be resettable at my workstation.

jthanson,
Check out the document below. I think it may solve your problem.

If not, check to see if your NetWare user name and NT computer name are the same. This is a known bug. If this is the case, try renaming the NT box, rebooting, log in to the NetWare system, and then see if the changes will stick.

Thanks,
Tony

     Symptom

     Windows NT running the NetWare Client for Windows NT, would print a banner and form
     feed even when they were disabled in the Control Panel | NetWare applet. This would only
     happen if the user was not a member of the ADMINISTRATORS group.

     keywords: IntranetWare, 4.0, 4.1, 4.11, Microsoft

     Cause

     Only users of the Group Administrators typically have sufficient rights to make changes in
     the section of the registry that controls printer information. By changing the Security
     Permissions in the registry, the group EVERYONE can be granted sufficient rights to alter the
     IntranetWare Settings stored in the printers properties page.

     Solution

     Change the rights of group EVERYONE in the REGISTRY to the key that controls the banner
     and form feed options. Do this by:

     1. Run REGEDT32 while logged in as a member of the ADMINISTRATORS group.
     2. Select the following key:
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
           Software
              Novell
                 Print
     3. Select the menu option Security | Permissions.
     4. Select group EVERYONE and change their Type of Access to Full Control.
     5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to modify the WCAP key.
     6. Select OK and reboot the NT box.

As previously stated, i've got administrative rights to this machine.  The IntranetWare Settings tab on the printer properties dialog box allows me to check and uncheck options, but when i click "OK" and then re-enter the properties dialog box, the checks are back on form feed and banner.

I came across the same problem when we upgraded to Windows Nt 4.0.  We found that if the computer name is the same name as the users login, the form feed and banner pages couldn't be removed.  We now name the computer something different i.e. user name is John Johnson, logs in as johnson, we name the computer jjohnson.  To change the name in NT, Right click on the Network Neigborhood icon, and click on the change button.  This won't affect operation, and has solved the problem for us.  Good Luck!
