I'm having a very hard time finding this out for sure. There seems to be
some conflicting information in Novell's own documentation.

The basic question is, can you safely disable SRS on all brokers on the
network if you are not using any Public Access printers? Are there any
other impacts at all of disabling SRS besides not being able to use Public
Access printers? (And I mean disabling SRS ENTIRELY, not having SRS
running on ANY broker on the entire network.)

It's a long story but we currently still use queue based printing. We
want to move to NDPS but our network people are concerned that the SRS
service creates a lot of network traffic. Most of what I read on Novell's
site implies that SRS is only used for Public Access printers. We won't
have any of those. But there is some documentation that implies that SRS
is used for more than just Public Access printers, but isn't clear exactly
what else it might be used for or what other functionality you'll lose if
you don't run it.

On a side note, we plan to use raw NDPS, NOT iPrint. We have no use for
the iPrint capabilities in our environment, and we want to leverage the
built-in ability of raw NDPS to automatically deploy printers to
designated workstations on login. (The only way I could find to
automatically deploy iPrint printers is through ZenWorks, which is not an
option for us.)

Thank you.
