Remote printer support problem to KNET printer
Desc:Customer has two system one Medic the other Irving1. He has
printer connected to Irving1 if he prints from Medic to Irving using
remote queue using lpr command his print job will not print. The
job goes into queue but will not print. If he use lp command it prints
Act:I tried printing using lpr here and it printed fine. I check
permission on lpr,they were ok. I will research. He will have his
vendor change his application to use lp instead of lpr.
Desc:Customer cannot print remotely to RS6000. The print jobs go to
queue on RS6000 but will not print.
lpr does automatically generate -Bgn flag which is different from
the lp or enq command defaults.
Disabled the server queue, printed from the remote client with
both the lp and the lpr commands using the application commands.
Found that the qdir showed the following additional flags being passed
with the lpr command
-Hirving3, -i0, -w132, -Bgn.
Tried 'qprt -Hirvings -i0 -w132 -Bgn -Pqueue /etc/hosts.
This did not print. Would tend to indicate problem is in flags.
Unlikely that i0, or w132 would cause the problem., but we
will try and send with these commands.
qprt -i0 -w132 -Pqueue /etc/hosts did NOT print,
lp -d did print.
qprt -w132 -Pqueue /etc/hosts did NOT print.
qprt -Pqueue /etc/hosts did print.
lpr -Pqueue /etc/hosts did NOT print.
qprt -c -Bgn -Pqueue /etc/hosts did NOT print.
qprt -Bgn -Pqueue /etc/hosts did NOT print.
medic1 is a LAT printer.
lsque -q medic1
device = medic1
lsquedev -q medic1 -d medic1
backend = /bin/ksh /usr/knet/database/medic1
3RD PARTY terminal server.
cat $@ > /dev/medic1
The cat command is an extremely poor backend because it not
only doesn't like flags, it doesn't give any error when you send
it one. It only FLUSHES the job.
NEXT: Removed existing queue.
rmquedev -q medic1 -d medic1
rmque -q medic1
NEXT: Created a new virtual printer
1. Local Host
Choose appropriate printer. - other ASCII
queue name = medic1
NEXT: Pointed the virtual printer at the named pipe /dev/medic1
find medic1 - /medic1
change file=/dev/lpx to file=/dev/medic1
lpstat -vmedic1 shows READY.
lp -dmedic1 /etc/motd
This did print.
Now go to the other side - try the lpr just like application does.
