Setting up HP Laserjet 2200DN network printer to SCO OpenServer 5
Posted on 2004-09-16
I am not really familiar with SCO OpenServer operating system. I managed to know a little command like SCOadmin after browsing through the Internet. This company is running Medical Manager program on the SCO server version 5. They have few dumb terminals and PCs running Windows 98, 2K and XP. All of them used to be able to print from Medical Manager to the shared printer hosted by one of the computer. This computer is now down and I replaced it with new PC. Since then nobody could print to the printer from the Medical Manager, especially from the dumb terminals. I have tried to create host (the new computer), create printer using SCOadmin and many more attempts but up to now I have no success. Few errors that I got are like: "192.168.4.204 (the new computer's IP): Connection refused". " Connection to 192.168.4.204 is down". "Failed to execute SCOadmin printer manager jetdirect".
Actually what I really want to do is to setup this printer as a network printer to the SCO server. This printer is connected to HP Jetdirect 170 box and has an IP address. I'm able to test this printer from SCOadmin HP Printer Manager.
Anybody out there tha could help me out is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
