Custom iPrint page returns user to the iPrint default ipp page after printer install

Novell iPrint for Linux


When installing an iPrint printer from a custom iPrint map page, the page should redirect back to the map page after the printer installs.  However, the page redirects to the default iPrint install page (http://<IPorDNS/ipp) instead.


Apply the latest novell-iprint-server and novell-iprint-client RPMs for the version of OES running on the server.


An update to the iprint.js file has hard coded instructions to redirect the page to the /ipp page instead of the previous page.

The iprint.js file is located at /var/opt/novell/iprint/htdocs/scripts/
