Usage

The print queue manager will control the print queue for each installed printer. The default install only allows access by the admin user, either to the server manager panel or via web browser.

In server manager select the item Administration >> Printerqueue Admin

For web browser access use the URL

http://www.yourdomain/LPRng

In either case, you will be prompted for the admin username and password.

The usage of the panel is self explanatory.

It is also possible to configure the user manager contrib to have access to the print queue manager.
