HP LaserJet 1022n - Ready led blinking

Hi!

We were using the HP 1022n for about 3 years, with a Netware 6.5 iPrint server and MS-Windows workstations.

Now we moved the printer from the Netware iPrint server to Suse (Linux) iPrint.

The problem is that after the printer finished job printing, the READY led continue to blink. It didn't hapened with the older server.

The printer configuration is:
iprintgw PORT=RAW HOSTADDRESS=192.168.254.150

Please help.

TIA

In iManager, are any jobs still listed in the Jobs tab of the printer's property book?

No!!!
The list is empty!!!
It looks that the job was printed completely and OK.
If the GO button is pressed, then a TEST page is printed and the Ready led stop blinking and remain "light on".

How about changing PORT=RAW to PORT=PASSTHROUGH or PORT=TEXT

Shutdown printer and restart after each change...see if that helps.

Ups...Did a cut'n paste from a Netware box.....

On Linux, you should be using iprintgw and not NDPSGW 😉

Thanks!

I already tried it, doesn't solve the problem

It seems like the printer doesn't receive something like an END OF FILE (EOF) character.

Check if there are any advanced settings in the client printer properties.
I know PS drivers usually have the option to send/not send a Ctrl-D before
or after the print job.

Didn't find such an option.

Is it such an option in the iPrint?

Not sure using Linux - can't see anything with NDPS on Netware. The driver
setting I was talking about on the Windows machine is actually under
device settings on the PS drivers I use here.

Are you talking about Windows workstation?
What means PS?
On an Win XP workstation, where are the PS drivers?

TIA
