LPR Communication Failed
Posted on 2006-04-19
Environment: Netware 6.0 SP5, Imanager 2.5
Problem: From an email I received: “NDPS printers - they stop working on a
regular basis and the Sysops need to go into NDPS manager and restart the
printer and then it works again. We don't have this problem at other schools.
A little more info - when setting up a printer at Stonehedge, more times that
not, we get the error "LPR communication failed" and we have to edit the
gateway status line. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but
Some Attempted resolutions:
-Updated NDPSM using file that just came out March 2006
- Entered the IP address of the printer, and selected port 9100 rather than LPR Printer Name: PASSTHROUGH and vice versa
Any ideas guys? Thanks!
