D-Link DPR-1061 installed to be able to print to dot matrix printer from workstations. This works on XP and Win 7 systems. But cannot print from the server which is Windows SBS server 2003.
Does anybody have a solution?

This is also the only device available here. I see talk of other models but none available here in South Africa.

Make sure your unit has the latest firmware installed, and also make sure you are using the most up to date software:-

If your printer is connected directly to the server, is it able to print to it then? Has your SBS server ever been able to print to the dot matrix unit?

It could print but that old print server packed up. It could not support Windows 7 anyway.
This is the only replacement available.
The firmware and software comes off the web as the latest available.

I have not connected it directly onto the server because of practical reasons. That is why it has to be on the network to start with. The server is in the server room. The printer is in the warehouse to print picking slips.

The sales guys log in remotely and load the orders. They need to print the picking slip.
Now they have to call the office and get someone there to print it.

Seems only solution is to upgrade that server.

Windows 2003 should work with XP drivers, the unit supports XP.
When you say you cannot print, what do you mean?
Does it fail to print, or does it not install drivers?

When I try to connect it by running the setup utility, it fails. Well one starts by opening IE and entering the IP address. The utility should run triggering the install. This does not happen. There is just no response.

What sort of port does it use?
If it is just a tcpip port, then set it up manually.

It is probably being blocked on the server by a setting in ie or the firewall.

Follow the instructions on page 85 of the manual

The port must be set to lpr, the queuename must be as shown by the server (it is case sensitive)
