I-Queue! simplifies printing in the Novell NetWare environment.
From a small memory-resident pop-up (0 to 2-1/2KB), I-Queue! allows
users to easily change NetWare print queues and modify "capture"
Key features include:
* Select a file server/print queue for caputuring
* Capture your output to a file
* Select the number of copies
* Enter or choose printer setup strings from existing PRINTDEF
* Select forms
* Ability to select from pre-defined PRINTCON job configurations
* Select timeout interval
* Enable or disable form feed
* Expand or disable tabs (text or binary mode)
* Enable or disable banner
* Notify when job is printed (available with Novell's PSERVER and
several other third-party print servers)
Users can also easily display a list of jobs in any queue to
determine the status of a job, as well as deleting or changing
the parameters of any job that they submit before it prints.
Queue operators have the added capability of deleting print jobs,
moving and copying jobs between print queues, and re-ordering the
position of jobs in the queue.
Plus, I-Queue! includes the OnHold utility, which allows users to
submit print jobs that can automatically be placed "on hold", or
delayed for printing at a later time.
1.) LOGIN TO YOUR FILE SERVER AS SUPERVISOR OR A SUPERVISOR-EQUIVALENT.
2.) COPY I-QUEUE! TO YOUR SERVER
Copy I-Queue!'s program files into SYS:PUBLIC or another
appropriate directory on your file server. The following
files are required to be accessible to all I-Queue! users.
Note: If you are running other Infinite Technologies'
utilities, they share a common VIDEO.OVR file. Use the
VIDEO.OVR with the most recent date stamp.
3.) RUN IQINSTAL TO INITIALIZE I-QUEUE!
Run IQINSTAL.EXE to initialize the I-Queue! 30 day trial period.
4.) RUN PRINTDEF TO DEFINE YOUR NETWORK PRINTERS.
I-Queue! runs best when PRINTDEF has been used to create setup
strings that can be made available for users.
Execute the Novell PRINTDEF utility and select "Print Devices".
NetWare comes with drivers for a variety of different printer
types (the .PDF files located in SYS:PUBLIC). It is best to use
these as a starting point. Select "Import Print Device" and
enter SYS:PUBLIC as the path under "Source Directory". This will
give you a list of available printer definition files (PDFs).
Import that definitions for any printer types that you use on
your network with PRINTDEF.
Refer to your NetWare documentation for additional information
5.) RUN IQSETUP TO CONFIGURE I-QUEUE!
The IQSETUP.EXE utility allows you to define some additional
information for use by I-Queue!
Most importantly, the "Queue Defaults" option allows you to
define a descriptive name and default printer type definition
for each NetWare print queue. This way, when selecting setup
strings for jobs directed to a particular queue, you can press in I-Queue! to see a list of pre-defined setup strings
for the type of printer to which the queue is directed.
Printer types must first be defined using the NetWare PRINTDEF
utility, as described in #4 above.
Additional options in IQSETUP include:
"Enable Q_OPERATORS to Move/Copy print jobs" - In order for
I-Queue! to be able to move and/or copy jobs between print
queues, special rights must be given to the user. This option
will grant all necessary rights to the defined Queue Operators
of a queue. Queue operators are defined in the NetWare PCONSOLE
"Copy SUPERVISOR's Printcon.Dat to each user" - NetWare's PRINTCON
job configuration information is maintained on a user by user
basis, i.e., each individual has their own Printcon.Dat configuration
file. Most LAN administrators would prefer to create one
Printcon.Dat file that is shared by all users. This option
copies the SUPERVISOR's Printcon.Dat file to all users.
"Make SUPERVISOR's Printcon.Dat GLOBAL" - This option copies
the SUPERVISOR's Printcon.Dat file to SYS:PUBLIC for use as
a global Printcon.Dat file. If you select this option,
you will need to also select the option that follows.
"Modify NetWare utilities to support Global Printcon" will
configure the NetWare utilities PRINTCON, NPRINT and CAPTURE
to work with this global Printcon.Dat file.
"Modify NetWare utilities to support Local Printcon" reverses
the modifications made by the previous option.
6.) INSTALLATION / CONFIGURATION COMPLETE -
PROCEED TO LOADING I-QUEUE!
To load I-Queue!, simply type IQ.
If you wish to take advantage of the additional capabilities of
the OnHold utility to enable submitting print jobs that are
automatically put on hold or delayed for later printing, then
you should also load the ONHOLD.EXE program into memory.
Optional command-line parameters for IQ.COM include:
/NR tells I-Queue! to run non-resident. This is recommended
when running under a task switching environment or Microsoft
/NE tells I-Queue! not to use Expanded memory for swapping.
/NX tells I-Queue! not to use Extended memory for swapping.
/NU tells I-Queue! not to use 386-to-the-MAX or QEMM upper
memory blocks to reduce conventional memory overhead.
/D tells I-Queue! not to use Expanded or Extended memory for
swapping, and to swap to disk. (I-Queue! will swap to disk
by default if insufficient expanded or extended memory is
available.) Note: I-Queue! creates a swap file in C:\ or
the directory specified via the DOS TMP environmental
variable. I-Queue! is NetWare aware, so multiple
workstations can safely use the same TMP directory.
/U unloads or de-installs I-Queue!.
You can also change I-Queue!'s default hot-key of -
the command line with the following command line parameters:
# Tells I-Queue! to use instead of in the hot-
% Tells I-Queue! to use - instead of just
in the hot-key.
& Tells I-Queue! to use - instead of
in the hot-key.
! Tells I-Queue! to use - instead of
in the hot-key.
A-Z Any alphabetic character from A to Z can be specified
to work in conjunction with or in the hot-
Fxx Any function key (F1-F12) can be specified to work in
conjunction with or in the hot-key.
IQ alone defaults to the -
hot-key, or if I-Queue!
has already been loaded, the hot-key is not changed.
IQ X tells I-Queue! to use - as its hot-key.
IQ #Z tells I-Queue! to use - as its hot-key.
IQ F12 tells I-Queue! to use - as its hot-key.
IQ %F5 tells I-Queue! to use -- as its hot-key.
IQ &Z tells I-Queue! to use -- as its
IQ !F1 tells I-Queue! to use -- as its
POPPING UP I-QUEUE!
Press the I-Queue! hot-key defined when loading I-Queue!, and the
I-Queue! menu will be displayed.
For more information about the I-Queue! menu options, press
A couple of additional configuration options should be mentioned.
If you want users to default to the Printcon Job Configuration
selection window when popping up I-Queue!, set the following
DOS environmental variable: SET IQQUICK=Y
If you experience problems where your video display is corrupted
when popping up or exiting I-Queue!, this is due to a bug in your
VGA card's BIOS. Load the small memory-resident utility VGASAVE.COM
provided in the IQUEUE.ZIP file before loading IQ.COM on any
workstations that exhibit this behavior.

ForwardIT! is most useful in the MHS remote e-mail environment.
By remote, we refer to field workers or business travelers who
operate ExpressIT! Remote, or other MHS compatible remote
software, on a PC or laptop to access their electronic mail
from a distant location. Examples could include a salesperson
between sales calls, a business traveler in a hotel room,
or work-at-home scenarios.
Without ForwardIT!, when mail is sent to a recipient's office
address, MHS does not allow for a remote user to dial into the
network and retrieve mail waiting for their office address. Mail
addressed to this office address can only be picked up at the
In order to send a message to the user's MHS remote, the sender
must assume responsibility for sending a copy of the message to
the remote MHS address.
With ForwardIT!, the user leaves a forwarding address at the
office, and while they're out, all messages will be forwarded,
or copied, to their forwarding address, giving users transparent
access to their electronic mail while away from the office.
This forwarding address can be any valid MHS address, including
addresses via MHS gateways.
* MhsQ! - An MHS gateway interface to NetWare print queues.
Messages can be sent via MHS to a NetWare print queue.
This capability can be useful for MHS remote sites and/or
MHS enabled applications for generating printed output
Sample applications for MhsQ! include generating work orders to
a printer via MHS.
