Canon irs and Linux MAC

Has anybody has experience making the lower end imagerunners work through iPrint? They work fine through Windows using both UFR and PCL but I can not seem to make them work from Linux and MAC clients. HP printers work just fine so that should rule out client and server communications in theory. Running iPrint clustered on OES2 SP2 Linux. Clients are SLED11 x86_64 and OSx Tiger and Leopard on Intel. The specific Canon I am using for testing is IR1023if.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

To clarify, it simply will not print from Linux or MAC but other printers such as HP printers do. In all fairness, we can't get the Linux workstations to print to the Canons under any situation, even configured locally.

In Linux, the jobs go through and say they complete successfully but there is never any output. All Cups and iPrint logs on the client say the job was sent but the iPrint server has no record of the job.

In OSX there is an error message "Connection method not supported.: -9786" but the MACs will print to the Canon when configured manually.

Re: Canon irs and Linux MAC

Hi,

Please use the latest iPrint client v 5.00

If you are still facing the problem with this client, please do the following,
1. turn on the iPrint traces for shell
2. use iprntcmd -p command to print the job.
3. Please attach the output on shell here.

Regards,
Mangesh
