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.

Resources

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.
