Network Printer Resource Utility (NPRU)
Network Printer Resource Utility (NPRU) is an application that provides a repository (resource inventory) for fonts and overlays (macros) on a workstation with access to an IBM network printer. Once a font or overlay has been added to the NPRU inventory, it can be downloaded to RAM or hard drive.
The font formats supported are PCL Intellifonts, TrueType, and PostScript Type-1. Fonts and overlays that are downloaded are available to workstation applications when the network printer drivers are selected. NPRU is a separate program that uses the printer drivers to download. It is supported for:
Operating System Data Stream
Some drivers offer font and overlay download capability in the driver. See table below. The font format supported is PostScript Type 1. Fonts and overlays that are downloaded are available to workstation applications when the network printer drivers are selected. NPRU is a separate program that uses the printer drivers to download.

IBM Network Printer Manager (NPM) for Windows Utility
IBM provides the Network Printer Manager (NPM) Utility with an easy- to-use graphical interface for network administrators. Infoprint 70 is supported on NPM version 4.21. NPM runs on Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 platforms.
Network administrators can setup e-mail or pager notifications for Infoprint 70. Whether printers are low on toner, out of paper, or need attention, these notifications can get the information to the right source without delay, improving printer up-time and end user productivity.
NPM helps users install and configure IBM network printers in LANs, including Novell networks (Bindery and NDS). NPM monitors printers and provides printer status using the industry-standard, open-systems SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) Printer MIB and private enterprise MIBs.
Some examples of the information available using SNMP are as follows:
Other functions provided by NPM include:
NPM uses the following protocols:
Client Operating Control Configurable
TCP/IP Network Port Monitor Utility
The IBM TCP/IP Network Port Monitor provides bi-directional printer and job status for the Infoprint 70. It runs on Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 print servers. Clients on the following systems can benefit from the port monitor if they use a printer that was defined on a Windows NT 4.0 machine and is shared to the network:
Some of the benefits of the TCP/IP Network Port Monitor are as follows:
LPR Remote Printing Client
The LPR Remote Printing Client utility provides a TCP/IP port monitor for seamless Windows 95/98/Me network printing. This port monitor can be used on Windows 95/98 to direct print jobs from Windows applications to IBM Workgroup printers. This utility supports other printers or print servers that run a TCP/IP LPD print server. The port monitor can be used on mobile systems for remote printing or it can be used on department print servers in an unattended print server mode.
This package also includes a command line LPR executable program for printing jobs directly. The LPR program, called IBMLPR.EXE, provides a standard RFC 1179 compliant printing interface and allows the -S and -P parameters to be set by way of environment variables so that drag and drop printing can be enabled for a default printer.
Web Ready Printing
Using a Browser To Submit Print Jobs
Two methods of submitting a print job to the printer are available with Infoprint 70. They are referred to as (pull) and (push) printing.
For reference, the conventional method of job submission from a workstation is to select File and Print from an application menu. This process uses a print driver to create a print job which is then sent from the local workstation to the printer. Depending upon the installation configuration, the job may be sent directly to the printer, or to a print server and then to the printer.
With pull printing, a browser is used to access a web page in the printer. The user fills in an entry field on the web page with an internet address (or URL) of an existing file to be printed. An example would be a tax form that is available from a government web site. After entering the URL of the file, the user clicks on the Submit button. This submits the URL to the printer. The printer then retrieves and processes the file from the remote server identified by the URL. The file is transferred over the network only once (from the remote server to the printer). Conventional printing of a remote file requires the transfer of the file over the network twice (from the remote server to the local workstation and then to the printer).
Files printed using Pull Printing must be in the correct format to be successfully processed. Supported formats include the following:
Supported transfer protocols include HTTP, FTP and Gopher via a proxy server. In order for the printer to reach a server that is on the other side of a firewall, the proxy server must provide access through the firewall. The address of the proxy server is a configuration item in the printer that can be set by the printer administrator.
Pull printing provides a one step method of printing existing documents or forms that are available on many web sites. Pull printing can also be used to update the microcode of a printer by entering the URL of the microcode update file. The microcode file can be retrieved over the internet from the IBM Printing Systems web site (www.ibm.com/printers) or from a server configured by the printer administrator.
Push printing also uses a browser to submit a print job. As with Pull Print, the user fills in an entry field on the web page that identifies the name of an existing file to be printed. For push printing, the identified file must be accessible as a local file to the workstation. After entering the name of the file, the user clicks the submit button. The browser reads the file and transfers it to the printer. As with Pull Print, the file must be in a supported format, including the following:
Push printing provides a simple method of printing an existing document on any printer that can be reached with a browser.
IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) was commissioned by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and developed under the guidance of the Printer Working Group printing industry consortium. As such, IPP is better defined than its LPR predecessor (RFC 1179) and is now being adopted as a new standard for printing and job control in networks and over the Internet.
Infoprint 70 includes an IPP server that can accept jobs from an IPP client using HTTP/1.1 as the transport protocol as defined in IPPv1.0. An IPPv1.0 client is required on any operating system from which you want to do IPP printing. For example, Infoprint 70 can accept jobs submitted using IPP from the IPP client for Windows NT. IBM provides IPP clients for the following software solutions:
A list of additional third party IPP clients is available from the Printer Working Group Web site at the following:
SNMP MIB Support
Infoprint 70 supports industry standard open-systems SNMP printer MIBs.
Novell NetWare Support
Novell NetWare connectivity is supported via Token-Ring and Ethernet Adapters as PSERVER or RPRINTER.
With a standard hard disk, incoming print jobs can be spooled onto the hard disk if the printer is busy. Other types of jobs, such as PDF files, must be spooled because they cannot start printing until the entire job is received. Other types of jobs (PostScript, PCL) can either be sent directly to the printer or be spooled on the hard disk. Some types of jobs, such as AFP/IPDS files, cannot be spooled because they require communication back to the transmitting host concerning their print status.
Infoprint 70 allows the administrator to customize the printer so that all but AFP/IPDS jobs are spooled to the hard disk before printing. In some cases, this can reduce network traffic by minimizing the number of attempts to resend a job to a busy printer. The default spooling setting is to spool all but AFP/IPDS jobs. The setting can be changed on the operator panel or from the printer's Web page.
