NDPS doesn't use LPR properly with older OCE printers. NDPS is set to ask
for status updates regularly, which I guess is the way HP does things.

OCE's don't reply to these requests, so NDPS list the printer as down, and
won't print to it until the printer is rebooted, and NetWare gets a status
packet. The workaround for us is using an HP Jetdirect server, but it
connects to the parallel port, and is kinda slow.

Is there any possibility Novell will issue a patch that lets administrators
change the LPR poll settings?
