PSERVER.VAP - This new VAP is intended for NetWare 286 v2.15c and
above. This VAP fixes a bug that causes the rewind option to return to
the beginning of a document, ignoring the page number specified by
the user. This problem occurs when in text mode.

This new VAP also addresses a problem of tabs not working properly.

This new VAP contains the auto load feature which allows an
unattended load of the pserver.vap. This auto-load feature will
only be available on a NetWare 2.2 File Server.

AUTO-LOAD NOTES:

- When running this new pserver.vap on a NW 2.2 server the VAP
will prompt you for the Print Server name the first time the
VAP is loaded. From that point on the pserver.vap will
remember the Print Server Name until the name is cleared.

- To CLEAR a Print Server Name the user will simply type:

PSERVER CLEARNAME

at the console prompt on the NW 2.2 File Server. This will
cause the pserver.vap to prompt the user for a Print Server
Name on the next load of the pserver.vap.

PSERVER.EXE - This new EXE is intended for users of NetWare 386
v3.11 and NetWare 286 v2.2 to load a print server on a dedicated
workstation. This new PSERVER.EXE fixes a possible bug that could
create data corruption when printing large graphics documents with
serial and parallel printers. Although this bug has not been seen
with the EXE, it has been known to occur with PSERVER.NLM. This
problem is created by a special condition which causes the pointer
to override the print buffer. As a result, garbage characters are
printed in the middle of a document. Once the block of bad data is
printed, the printer resumes printing the document as it should.

This new EXE also addresses a problem of the rewind function not
working correctly when in text mode. It was also found that tabs
were not working correctly in the previous release. This issue has
been fixed in this update.

PSERVER.NLM - This new NLM is intended for NetWare 386 v3.11 and
fixes a bug that when printing large graphics documents with serial
and parallel printers. This problem is created by a special
condition which causes the pointer to override the print buffer. As
a result, garbage characters are printed in the middle of a
document. Once the block of bad data is printed, the printer
resumes printing the document as it should.

This new NLM also addresses a problem of the rewind function not
working correctly when in text mode.

These fixes will be incorporated in future versions of NetWare.

NOTE: Refer to your Print Server documentation for more
instructions and information on how to install the Print Server and
for further information on features.
