Currently running NetWare 3.12 with bootp(ipx & ip).  7 HP LaserJet with JetDirect card.  Can view the LaserJet through an older version of JetAdmin.  With newest JetAdmin program loaded on NT, only 3 LaserJet show up on NT.  Try both IP & IPX as default protocol on JetAdmin, and still the printers doesn't want to show up?  Help.

Is the new version of JetAdmin 2.53?
Is the new version of JetAdmin installed over the old version?
You can *Manually* enter in the IPX address of the missing printers, to force them to be recognized.
What happens if you install the new version over the old, do printers disappear?
Are print servers all running the latest firmware?

The latest version of Jet Admin works based on your rights.  To see all the info and be able to edit everything, you must be logged in as supervisor or equiv.

Try using the DOS version.  I think it's called PCONFIG.  It worked and looked a lot simpler than the GUI version of JetAdmin.

Is your novell server acting as the print queue server to these printers?

Hi Everyone

Yes, I am running JetAdmin 2.53.  Fresh from Internet.  Tried to put in the ipx address of the Jetdirect forcefully, still does not recognized it.  

Jetdirect cards are all version J2371A.  All the printers that  are shown up are HP Laser 4Plus or above.  Only HP4 printers are not show up on JetAdmin.

The older version of JetAdmin is designed for Novell.  And the machine is way too slow (386 with Win3.1) for Win95 (that's how management people treats IS people in all company).  

Cannot upgrade JetDirect to latest firmware.  It does not have the required hardware simm to do the install.  Too bad!!

To jrhelgeson:
Yes, currently the NetWare is the print queue server for all printers.  Temporary using Gateway for NetWare to do the print job, but suffer some performance hits.  

To drodey:
Let me try the dos version tomorrow.  

Thanks so much for you guys' help.  I am uping the point to 150.
