Remote printing problem with Open Server 5.0.6

Client has a multipurpose Ricoh Printer/copier/scanner

I've installed this as a remote printer on a SCO Open Server 5.0.6
along with a couple of HP LaserJet printers.

Everything works fine, most of the time.

But sometimes, printing will stop and a strange "print job" will
appear in the print queue.

The printjob manager in scoadmin then will look something like below:

��
�� ricoh-694       ricoh         john     11404   Dec 28 14:13

gwxx.gwxx.com is the name of the server, and ps1 is the name of the
print queue on the ricoh printer (Aficio 2045e)...it has its own
builtin network card.

I'm not sure what is generating this "Print Job", and why it can't be
deleted.  Sometimes deleting the jobs behind it will make it go away,
but other times the unix box has to be rebooted.

Any ideas greatly appreaciated.

Thanks,

Larry,
It is likely that you will have to look for print errors on the print
server (gworld.gworld.com) in order to get to the bottom of this one.
But if there are errors on the Unix box then the first place to check
would be the mail.  Not sure what user is sending the job, so not sure
what mailbox to check, but you can just go to /usr/spool/mail and read
each file if desired.
You can also check the /usr/spool/lp/logs/requests file for clues.
This shows each and every print request sent from the PC and may help
you determine what is creating the print job.

That is all I can think of right now, hope it helps!

SCO Open Server 5.0.6 versus 5.0.4
Hi, Anybody can point me to info or can state if there is a performance improvement from running 5.0.6 versus 5.0.4. Application is database access centered. Regards, Marian news wrote: > Hi, > Anybody can point me to info or can state if there is a performance > improvement from running 5.0.6 versus 5.0.4. Application is database access > centered. I don't think you are going to get a useful answer. Let's assume that I could authoritatively say that 5.0.6 has performance related improvements over .4 in certain areas. I can't recall if it does or doesn't, but the release notes would surely mention any. But so what? What does that say about YOUR application? Do we know where its performance issuees are now? Nope. We could assume it's probably disk bound, because that's a pretty safe assumption most any time, but even if true, what have you done for better or worse in that regard already? Maybe this is an Oracle database and you have it running on a RAID 5 system. As that's usually going to be a bad idea, you could gain nothing even if 5.0.6 did otherwise provide features that would otherwise improve your lot. Maybe you have the whole thing improperly tuned. Maybe you have it so perfectly tuned that an upgrade would make it worse because everything is so critically balanced to what you have now.. There are plenty of good reasons to upgrade to 5.0.6/7. If that's what you are lookimg for (a reason to sell the idea to ...

2 NICs problem in SCO Open Server 5.0.5
Hi, I had a SCO box with 1 card ( 3COM 905B ) installed with IP 10.0.1.30/24 and everything was OK. I installed second card ( the same type - 3COM 905B) and configured IP as 192.168.1.1/24. After kernel relink and boot I can not ping any machine in 192.168.1.0/24 network. I checked all physical connections, routing, etc. Strange thing is that I noticed, that both network interfaces have the same MAC address. If I run ifconfig -a, I see: net1: flags=4043<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 10.0.1.30 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 10.0.1.255 perf. params: recv size: 24576; send size: 24576; full-size frames: 1 ether 00:50:04:07:93:d6 net0: flags=4043<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 192.168.1.1 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255 perf. params: recv size: 24576; send size: 24576; full-size frames: 1 ether 00:50:04:07:93:d6 What did I do wrong?

Real problems in compiling Apache Web Server with Open Server 5.0.6

Printing on a DP-301P Print server SCO Unix OSR 5.0.7
How do a setup a printer that is on my local network with IP 192.168.2.17 ? The Unix server is on 192.168.2.7 on the same network. I tried "scoadmin" looking for something like "add tcp/ip printer" but no luck at all. So I'm thinking that I have to create a new port (i.e. /dev/lp192.168.2.17) so then I can assign a printer to it right ? Any help would be greatly appreciate it.

Hi everybody, I have a folder on SCO 5.0.5 server shared through NFS with a new SCO 6.0.0 with MP2 server (converted from a SCO 5.0.6 version). Before conversion file locks (over network) on this folder works well (eg from server SCO 5.0.6 I was able to see locks generated from SCO 5.0.5 box and viceversa), now with SCO 6.0.0 does not work ! I see that on SCO 6.0.0 the lockd daemon is active .. so it should work ... Please can you help me ? Thanks Cuffiette ...

Are there simply inharent problems with SCO 5.0.6 IP printing ?
Hello All, I have been trying to get IP printing for some time to work. It does work for the most part. The company I work for has big cron job. These are order pics that can be many hundreds. The first attempt used HP Jetdirect. The problem happens when there is a printer error. Out of paper or just a paper jam. Please don't ask me about the printer errors there is nobody there at 3am. The printer is attached to a 3 port HPJet Direct 500X. The sympton of the problem is to duplicate print jobs. The job would be shipped twice if not caught. I then attempted to implent netcat. Now when there is a printer error it just stops and the rest of the orders are lost. The system has a Digi serial controler epca - - - mem=0xFE400000 ports=48 PCI X(e)m V6.0.6 I would prefer to get off the Digi controler if I can. Don't want to play with rts/cts, xon/xoff. This is a printek 4003 printer If anybody has input on this I would like to hear it. btb "Brent Bolin" <brent@dbprograms.com> wrote in message news:fafbd945.0312101431.443df26c@posting.google.com... > Hello All, > > I have been trying to get IP printing for some time to work.

Looking for precompiled 'rsync" for SCO 5.0.5, 5.0.6 and 5.0.7
I was recommended to use 'rsync' for multi-site transfers. But I have come to find that "rsync" does not exist already in OpenServer 5.0.5, 5.0.6 and 5.0.7. You can only get the "source" files which you "must" compile in order to create the "rsync." These seems to require that you compile these on every level of OpenServer you need. Where / how can I get the 'rsync' binaries already compiled for the levels I need? smlunatick typed (on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 11:10:53AM -0700): | I was recommended to use 'rsync' for multi-site transfers.

The last time I tried to get Sendmail to do authentication on OpenServer I had to give up because it wants SASL to work, and it won't (see TA#125764). However, I do successfully use msmtp (http://msmtp.sourceforge.net/) to do what you describe. It (I think) will only support "plain" authentication on SCO, but that it is probably good enough for most ISP mail servers.

SCO OpenServe 6.0.0 Filesystem MUCH Faster Than 5.0.6
The speed of the SCO OpenServer 6.0.0 filesystem is quite noticeably faster than I enjoyed on OpenServer 5.0.6. How do I know? I donno, but it feels and seems so. I didn't expect this, so I didn't make these tests while still on 5.0.6, but I KNOW I have a lot more files and directories on 6.0.0 than I did on 5.0.6. The Verify of my Last Master Backup shows what is on my systen: 255191 files were encountered 167 files were excluded 9 files were not checked because the hard disk file had been modified by a program since it was backed up 2 files were not checked for various reasons 28870 special files (links, directories, devices, etc.) 226143 files verified successfully Master Backups using LONE-TAR(tm) to DVD+RW media ran at about 70-75 MB/min on OSR 5.0.6 but run at 175+ MB/min on 6.0.0, and if I turn off compression run at 260+ MB/min.

SCO 5.0.5/5.0.6 bios clock, time zone and synching

The timezone settings in SCO Admin are also wrong. I was under the impression *nix always expects the BIOS clock to be set to UTC and then the timezone settings in SCO tell the OS what the local time is. This does not seem to be the case for me. On a testing box, Ive set the BIOS clock to UTC, set the correct timezone in scoadmin but the date command in a root shell still gives the wrong time. E...

We are running SCO 5.0.6a in VMware virtual machines which pretty much eliminates hardware compatibility issues. Generally we install this on the Latest & Greatest verions of CentOS Linux. The resulting system is significantly faster in the VM than it was when running on the previous hardware, which makes sense as current hardware is significantly faster than whatever was available when 5.0.6 was originally installed. Our primary OSR development system, which also runs my ancient accounting software, is running on a Supermicro box with 4GB RAM, and dual Opterons. The SCO VM has 1.5GB RAM allocated, which is more than it was running native.

FAXing from SCO Unix 5.0.6
I'm supporting a SCO Unix 5.0.6 machine. I don't want to spend $1700 on a "fax server solution". Instead, I'm looking for a fax modem for which there are drivers for SCO or generic enough for Unix in general. I also need "fax software" to enable the whole endeavor. All I'm attempting is what is done quite readily in Windows: print to a psuedo-driver which, in turn, invokes the fax s/w that solicits the phone number to fax to and any other required info. I don't need all kinds of fancy options like choices for cover pages, etc. The application used by my client is strictly text-based - no GUI. Any advice for public-domain - or inexpensive - software to accomplish this is much appreciated. Regards, David On Fri, Apr 18, 2008, David wrote: >I'm supporting a SCO Unix 5.0.6 machine.

SCO Unix 5.0.6, errors
Hi, I am getting the error(s); HTFS: Inode 11915 on HTFS dev hd (1/43) has bad type 000000000000 HTFS: I/O failure occured accessing logical block 477364230 on HTFS dev hd (1/43) and then the system shuts down. Is there any way to fix these? We have done the command 'unix auto' at the Boot: prompt and it goes through its file system checks and appears to correct some problems. We have had some corruption on the database but were able to fix the problems. Our next plan of action is to clone the drive, but if anyone has any other suggestions for a way to fix this issue I would appreciate it. Lori Calkins It would help if you'd provided disk information, such as how many partitions. I'm guessing from what you provided that the problem is on the root partition. By default 5.0.6 doesn't check the root file system on an auto boot. What you're seeing is the file system checks on the rest of the partitions. When you get the Boot: prompt just press enter. Eventually you'll be prompted for the root password to enter maintenance mode. Do that.

ttyp problem on Sco Open Server 5.04
I connect to my server trough a VT220 emulation PC and the server make a ttypX pseudo-terminal device. But when I logoff the emulation the server wrongly keep the ttypX without PID process. I sow this because when I shutdown the system It returned a message like "/etc/shutdown:3106 alarm call" and after 120 seconds it asked to me if I want to shutdown (y/n). The system then shutdown normally. Also the boot is correct and has no problems. What can I do to solve this problem? Thanks Marco This is the syslog file of my server with the telnetd error: [cut] Jul 9 08:43:56 scosysv telnetd[654]: ttloop: peer died: Unknown error Jul 9 08:44:22 scosysv telnetd[731]: ttloop: peer died: Unknown error Jul 9 08:44:42 scosysv telnetd[729]: ttloop: peer died: Unknown error Jul 9 08:45:17 scosysv telnetd[733]: can't find terminal control database entry for line ttyp0 Jul 9 08:46:43 scosysv telnetd[800]: can't find terminal control database entry for line ttyp0 Jul 9 08:49:28 scosysv telnetd[869]: can't find terminal control database entry for line ttyp1 Jul 9 08:50:03 scosysv telnetd[842]: can't find terminal control database entry for line ttyp0 Jul 9 09:57:19 scosysv telnetd[1084]: can't find terminal control database entry for line ttyp2 Jul 9 09:58:13 scosysv telnetd[1110]: can't find terminal control database entry for line ttyp2 Jul 9 10:00:50 scosysv telnetd[1056]: can't find terminal control database entry for line ttyp1 Jul 9 ...

VMWare Server + SCO 5.0.7 networking problems
Hi, Sorry all, another VMWare question here! I've been trying without success for a couple of days to get a SCO VM system running. I'm using VMWare Server which also has a couple of Linux based systems which do work fine. The problem is quite weird. Basically, once booted I can "see out", from the SCO box - ping websites, telnet to other local machines etc... In addition from the machine running the VM I can telnet in, browse served Apache pages etc... Problems start when I attempt to connect from other machines on the network - they can ping the SCO VM system, but can't telnet in, or for example Apache doesn't serve pages. It's not completely broken because there is some evidence of a connection on the SCO end, eg. when I telnet I see this :- Trying 10.80.14.205... Connected to 10.80.14.205 (10.80.14.205). Escape character is '^]'. Connection closed by foreign host. If I try to browse an Apache page (default Apache 5.0.7 setup, haven't done anything with it yet) I do see the connection in access_log but nothing gets returned. It strikes of network issues - but as I say I can ping the box and can also telnet out from it. Plus the Linux servers work fine - I've tried everything on DHCP and the Linux servers work fine but not the SCO 5.0.7 one. I've just done a clean install of 5.0.7 to try and resolve the issue. Anyone any pointers? I'm using the default (auto detected) HW AMD PCNet-PCI adapter. Cheers, Stuar...
