Problem printing on SAP

i have installed a new Win2003 Server Std 64bits server as a print server, these printers are used by sap running saplpd on server. We are not able to print using the new server. I have 2 man differences between windows print servers:
1. Old was 32 bits version, new is 64 bits version, both win2003 Std
2. Old server has saplpd running as a service, new one as an apllication on startup folder beacuse i don´t know how to addit as a service.

I´ll appreciate any help

Hi,

The main thing that usually causes SAP printing to fail when setting up a new print server is that the TCP/IP printing service/UNIX Print Services is not installed or running on the server. Install this and set is to start automatically.

Don't use SAPLPD but you can add software as a service using SC.exe.

I mean I don't use SAPLPD in my setups but that doesn't mean you can't.

The simplest way to check this is to telnet to the old print server name on port 515.

telnet oldprintserver 515

TCP/Unix print services listens on port 515 and for a standard U: Print using Berkley SAP printer that's what SAP tries to connect to the print server on.
