I'm trying to print to a remote printer on HP-UX through a remote print server.
I've added the remote printer with both SAM and the command line.
I can ping the remote printer (added it's IP address in the /etc/hosts
file) and I can see the printer in the lpstat:
printer queue for PRN_5000
Queue Dev Status Job Name From To
Submitted Rnk Pri Blks Cp PP %
------- ----- --------- --------- --- --- ----- --- ---- --
prn_5000 hp@pr READY
hpuxstation1: prn_5000: ready and waiting
The hostname is hpuxstation1
the printer is prn_5000. This is aan HP laserjet 5000 printer. This
printer has always worked like a charm, but after a complete system
install where I did to my knowledge everything the same way as three times
before, the printer does not print.
To print I try the following:
lp -dprn_5000 /etc/protocols
I use -d because even it is the default queue I want to be sure. The
result of this command is:
request id is prn_5000-3 (1 file)
and it shows up in the /var/spool/log file of the printers:
***** LP LOG: Feb 7 13:40 *****
prn_5000-0 root prn_5000 Feb 7 13:41
prn_5000-1 root prn_5000 Feb 7 13:44
prn_5000-2 root prn_5000 Feb 7 13:44
prn_5000-3 root prn_5000 Feb 7 14:08
prn_5000-5 root prn_5000 Feb 7 14:10
however when I look at the printer it is only waiting for input. No sleep
mode and certainly not printouts..
What is necessary to get this printer do what it is supposed to do? like
