Universal Print Driver with Printer Driver Profile enhancements
Use Universal Printer Driver (UPD) model to simplify the task of managing the vast array of printer makes and models. This model allows the printer vendor to create a single printer driver that works with most (if not all) of the printer and multifunction devices that the vendor manufactures. With this innovation, the Administrator/User no longer needs to install a unique driver for each and every printer model, but uses one driver to communicate with their devices.
Installation of the UPD on the iPrint server (NetWare 6.5 SP8 or Linux) remains the same as with discreet drivers. Use iManager to upload the driver to the Broker or Driver Store and then assign this driver to the printer(s). It is recommended that you use the latest iManager and also the latest support packs/updates for the iPrint server. The latest updates include support for Windows 7, printer driver profile updates, and enhancements for bi-directional communications which are a necessity for UPD function and printer driver profile creation.
