We've got a printer(printer1) set-up through a tty device(tty01). lpstat showed the printer as not accepting data. An 'accept tty01' was done which changed the status to accepting data, however, that should have been an 'accept printer1' instead. All the data is now queueing up instead of printing. It appears as though the accept changed some property of the printer (it now thinks it's a tty instead of a printer?) so it no longer prints. Any idea what needs to be changed so it can print again?
We've got a down printer(see above :). It has a queue of print jobs. An lpmove (lpmove printer1 printer2) was done to a working printer. The jobs all disappeared from the original printer1 queue, however, they never printed from the new printer - nor are they now queued up there. None of them required any special forms, permissions or processing. Any idea what happened?
