Yes  I  have been using the new  32 bit version and it  has been working
quite well. The TCP/IP printer daemon isn't available in the 16 bit
version.

  We  have  over 300 users of which  most will eventially need the ability
to  print reports at their workstation. Currently we are distributing
NIPrint, which requires additional installation and support. I  intend to
move to using WINAPPC for acheiving this.

A few other ideas reqard to  TCP/IP printing administration.
  I  have also been contemplating with the idea of   allocating  a dynamic
outq  for the user.  Situation  every  user would  be given  their own outq
which would have a dummy IP address.  Create a  record and application for
them to maintain their printer manufacturer  information .  At  signon we
would check for the existence  of reports , If any exist  prompt them to
start of  their LPD software;   Modify their  outq  with the retreived  IP
address .  This would alleviate problems when  people move  from  location
to location their IP address would always be current to where they were.
