You can insert several flags into the command, preceded by %. These

Each job in a NetWare print queue has a job type. For print jobs, this
corresponds to the number of the form the job should be printed
on. You can tell pserver that it should only receive jobs for one
specific form from the queue. The default is -1, which means that
everything is received.
Pserver is not informed by NetWare servers when new jobs arrive. So a
polling scheme has to be used. When there are no jobs to service,
tells pserver how long to wait between two requests. The default is 30
seconds. When a job is finished, pserver asks the NetWare server
immediately for a new job, and does not wait

diagnostic messages that are printed when a error occurs.
