Iprint Printer does not stop printing

helloo everyone
Since i upgraded my workstation from iprint 4.28 into 4.30 and then into 4.32 i face a problem with some of HP printers as some of them does not stop printing if someone tries to print something until the paper is finished. i tried almost everything as i changed the IP address, printer server, drivers old ones and new ones, PCL6 and PCL5e, reinstalled the workstations. so any one faced the same problem or anyone that got some solution. i contacted HP and we went through all the possible stuff that can be done and at last the technician said there is no problem with the printer. the problem with your printing system which is Iprint.

Re: Iprint Printer does not stop printing

tarzan 055,

Sorry, I probably don't understand what you mean, but if someone sends a
big print job to a printer through iPrint or any other technology for
that matter which will use up all paper in the printer, that's not a
problem. The printing system is just doing what it has been told to do -
to print the print job.

However, if for example there's 500 sheets of paper in the printer, and
someone sends a print job of 250 pages to the printer, the printer still
ends up printing on all 500 sheets, then there's something in your config
that is a miss.

Check into the settings on both the printer at the client and in iPrint,
that you don't have it set to print multiple copies for instance.

I've not seen this problem with any particular printer nor version of
iPrint.

it happens even if someone prints only one page. i already looked into the settings everywhere and made a printer profile in Imanager but the case is the same

Re: Iprint Printer does not stop printing

tarzan 055,

So if you were to backrev the iPrint Agent version to 4.30 or 4.28 the
problem no longer exists?
What OS and support pack version on the server?

OK, do you have any of the SP7 post patches applied. Especially the,
iprntnw65sp7a.zip and wsock6n.zip? If not try applying them.
