Printing locally to HP720c while connected to a 3.12 network
Posted on 1998-07-09
Background: We recently upgraded a local printer from a Canon bj200 to a Hp720c. Station is running windows 3.1. The 720c will not print from DOS based applications on the server. The problem also occurs on Win95 stations. When I reconnect the Canon and change the drivers, it prints fine. The 720c will not print in DOS mode. The 720 prints fine in all of our other applications through both 3.11 and win95. We have a hp 5 network printer with a jet direct card for a network printer. It is not being used by these stations but, they have access to it.
Question: How can we get the hp720 to print these network DOS applications as well as while in DOS mode?
