PPR: PostScript Printer Spooling

Mr. Tharan tells us how to use the PPR spooler for large networks.
Conclusion

PPR proves to be useful in a wide variety of configurations and should not be difficult to adapt to your needs. We use it here on a daily basis with very little maintenance: the main printing problems come from the printers themselves.

Many thanks to David Chappell, the author of PPR, who kindly reviewed this article.

Olivier Tharan (olive@minet.net) was a student in a French telecommunications high school and has been a system administrator for the students' campus network for three years. He enjoys getting e-mail, so he has subscribed to a dozen mailing lists which keep him occupied a good part of his short nights. Aside from that, he translates some Linux HOWTOs into French in his spare time.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
