Novell 4.1, Win 95, and Nprinter
Posted on 1997-03-17
I have a Novell 4.1 server, and a Pentium Win95 workstation with the latest Client32 loaded and working fine. The Win95 workstation has an HP Laserjet 5MP that I would like to share with several Win 3.1(not wfw) machines. I downloaded the latest Nprinter and am having problems.
When I launch Nptwin95.exe, the "Add network printer" screen comes up and I click the "..." to find the printer that I have set up (I have already set up the Printer, Queue and associated the Printer server). When I choose the Printer object I want, a little screen comes up that says:
Printer is configured to use LPT1.
LPT1 is not supported on this workstation.
Please choose another printer that does not use LPT1.
I am also using this workstation to share the printer with Win95's printer sharing, so I figured that Nprinter didn't like that and I removed both the printer driver and the windows networking "I want to share my printers" option. Nprinter still gave the same error. What am I missing?
