Installing Xerox Document Centre 265 LPR Port Windows NT 4 SP6 Print Server
Posted on 2003-02-24
I am trying to install a Xerox Document Centre 265 onto a network LPR port on our Winnt 4 SP6 Print Server. Every time I install it and try to print it spools for 2 seconds then gives me a printer error on the PS. LPD support on the printer is enabled and all settings are correct as far as I can see, and I can print configuration pages from the web management facility on the Printer.
The only thing I think it could be is I'm not 100% sure what to put in the "name of printer or print queue on that server" field when you add an LPR port. On all our basic laserjets etc it's just "AUTO" but there are a few printers we have around that require a specific name (PRINT_PRN-M for example). I have looked through all the techinical documents I can find but no where does it say specifically for this printer if I need to use a different name. In my frustration I tried everything I could find for other xerox printers (xjprint, xjhold, xjdirect, print, hold, direct, xprint, xhold, xdirect) but still no joy. Aulthough I'm not sure about that either since we have another Xerox Document Centre (different model No.) which we have just put "AUTO" as the queue name and it works like a dream. I have followed the instruction manual to the letter but it's just no good. I have completely run out of ideas.
Can anyone help me?
