Question Printing to a Netware printer?

I'm in need of printing to devices attached through a Netware 4.x server in Linux (RH 7.2).

Is there an easy way to do this, or would I have to go through ncpprint, etc?

I tried to set it up through the printtool GUI in RH, and entered all the server/user/password information it asked for, but when I try to print (lp test.txt) and check it with lpq, I get:

[rjc@home]# lpq -Pqms

Printer: PQ-QMS_2600-02@localhost 'qms'
Queue: 1 printable job
Server: pid 31106 active
Unspooler: pid 31113 active
Status: attempt 2, sleeping 10 before retry at 13:05:11.439
Rank Owner/ID Class Job Files Size Time
1 rjc A 105 test.txt 3002 13:05:11

... and it just times out and removes itself from the queue.

Can anyone shed some light on this please?

Many thanks,
