If users log in to a workstation but do not log in to NetWare and they have NetWare printers installed, they are prompted to log in to NetWare once by the QMS print provider and once by the NDPS® print provider. These login dialog boxes can be disabled if desired.
Windows has two registry setting options for disabling login dialog boxes:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Novell\Print\Delay Login\Delay Login=1
The print provider tells Windows that the printer is a NetWare printer even though the user is not authenticated. Then, the provider waits for an action that requires authentication is detected before displaying a login dialog box.
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Novell\Print\Never Login\Never Login=1
The print provider never displays the Novell Login dialog box, and print jobs sent prior to authentication fail. A message similar to the following is displayed:
Error writing to \\TREE\QUE.context: A write fault occurred on the network. Do you wish to retry or cancel the job?
