HISTORY OF COMPONENTS
---------------------

PSERVER.VAP NetWare 286 v2.15c and above
02/11/91 64130 v1.21
1) This VAP shipped with NetWare 2.2 and 3.11.

07/10/91 64994 v1.22
1) 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.

2) Addresses a problem of tabs not working properly.

3) 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.

02/27/92 65202 v1.22r
1) Upon loading PSERVER.VAP, the DTR and RTS lines are set high and
maintained high the entire time the VAP is loaded.

06/15/92 65218 v1.26
1) Version 122.r rev'd to 1.26 and passed testing.

Installation:
1) Make a backup copy of the PSERVER.VAP.

2) Copy the new PSERVER.VAP over the original version.

3) To use the new VAP, reboot the file server.


PSERVER.NLM NetWare v3.11
02/11/91 51208 v1.21
1) This NLM shipped with NetWare 3.11.

07/10/91 50358 v1.22
1) Fixed a problem 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.

2) Addresses a problem of the rewind function not working correctly
when in text mode.

03/03/92 51302 v1.22r
1) Causes DTR and RTS on the serial port to stay high once the Print
Server comes up.

2) Fixes a problem that causes print job corruption in the form of
ascii characters or form feeds. This corruption is known to occur on PaintJet printers,
but may occur on others as well.

3) Allows the user to specify how often the print server services jobs.
Currently, the polling time default is every 15 seconds. The poll
time can now be set by a load-time parameter using the following
syntax:

: LOAD PSERVER POLL=xx

where xx (1 - 30) equals the number of seconds the queue waits
before checking for jobs to be serviced. If the POLL parameter is
not entered, the default value is used. If an invalid POLL value
or if incorrect syntax is entered, the user is given the correct
syntax and the range of correct values and the user is then prompted
to hit any key to continue.

08/12/92 51866 v1.27
1) Version 1.22r rev'd to 1.27 and passed testing.

Installation:
1) Flag PSERVER.NLM as SRW in the SYS:SYSTEM directory
(Sharable Read Write).
2) Rename the existing PSERVER.NLM to PSERVER.OLD for backup purposes.
3) Copy the new PSERVER.NLM to the SYS:SYSTEM directory.
4) Flag the new PSERVER.NLM to SRO (Sharable Read Only).
5) To use the new NLM, load PSERVER at the console with the
following syntax:
:LOAD PSERVER [POLL=xx] [DELAY=x]


PSERVER.EXE NetWare 286 v2.15c and above
02/11/91 107928 v1.21
1) This EXE shipped with NetWare 2.2 and 3.11.

07/10/91 108184 v1.22
1) Fixes a possible data corruption problem when printing large graphics
documents with serial and parallel printers. Although this bug has
not been seen with the PSERVER.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.

2) 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.

03/02/93 108294 v1.22r
1) It causes DTR and RTS on the serial port to stay high
once the Print Server is installed.

2) This file also fixes a problem that causes print job
corruption in the form of ascii characters or form feeds.
This corruption is known to occur on PaintJet printers,
but may occur on others as well.

10/29/92 109116 v1.36
1) Contains NCP Packet Signing.

05/21/93 109650 Version Number: 3.75
1. Fixed a problem where remote printers when detecting a port already
in use were not disconnecting from the print server. They remained
in a "Waiting for Job" state.

Installation:
1) Flag PSERVER.EXE as SRW in the SYS:PUBLIC directory
(Sharable Read Write).
2) Rename the existing PSERVER.EXE to PSERVER.OLD for backup purposes.
3) Copy the new PSERVER.EXE to the SYS:PUBLIC directory.
4) Flag the new PSERVER.EXE to SRO (Sharable Read Only).


RPRINTER.EXE NetWare 2.15c and above
02/06/91 92378 v1.21
1) This EXE shipped with NetWare 2.2 and 3.11.

07/01/91 58472 v1.21b
1) Fixes Xon/Xoff not working.

02/18/92 59448 v1.22r
1) There is a intermittent problem when attempting to establish a
remote connection. Often when the attempt is made, the
print server responds with a message indicating that it
is unable to establish a remote connection, and that the
remote printer is already in use.

2) If a workstation batch file continually loads and reloads
Rprinter, a workstation hang could occur.
IPXODI.COM with a date of 02/07/92 is needed to solve
this problem. This problem should only occur if you are
using ODI Shell for DOS.

3) This version of RPRINTER.EXE addresses a problem with
RPRINTER v1.21 that was included with Netware V2.2 and
V3.11. The problem was that if XON\XOFF was defined,
RPRINTER would continue to utilize hardware handshaking.
The result was that the printer buffer would overflow
and/or the printer would go offline.

4) This version of RPRINTER.EXE also contains a fix for a
bug that caused RPrinter to quit accepting jobs after
aborting a job that was waiting for a form to be mounted.

5) This version of RPRINTER.EXE also contains a fix for a
bug that causes lost characters or slow printing when
printing documents. This is known to occur with a PS/2
Model 60 or 50 when running Rprinter v1.21.

6) This version causes DTR and RTS on the serial port to
stay high once the print server comes up.

7) This version contains a command line parameter to set the
strobe time as follows:
RPRINTER PRINTER# Tx
where x is a number from 1-9.

8) This version contains a fix for an intermittent problem
when using DOS 5.0. When loading RPRINTER.EXE the
workstation would hang.

06/04/92 59756 v1.26
1) Version 1.22r rev'd to 1.26 and passed testing.

05/04/03 64532 v3.75
1) This version of RPrinter incorporates a change which allows
the use of polled mode on all Parallel and Serial ports. When
loading RPrinter, use the -P command line parameter.

2) This version of RPrinter allows you to unload the last installed
RPrinter without specifying the print server and printer number.
This is accomplished by using the -R command line parameter

3) This version of RPrinter displays a usage screen by including the
/? command line parameter.

Installation:
1) Flag RPRINTER.EXE as SRW (Sharable Read Write) in the
PUBLIC directory.
2) Rename RPRINTER.EXE to RPRINTER.OLD in the PUBLIC
directory for backup purposes.
3) Copy RPRINTER.EXE to the PUBLIC directory on your system.
4) Flag the new copy of RPRINTER.EXE back to SRO (Sharable
Read-Only).
