Re: LPR Communication Failed

Hi,

Can you check that the printer is listening on port 515 if you're using LPR or 9100 if you're using RAW? "telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 515" or "telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 9100" should show a flashing cursor if they're listening.
We have one of these working in our environment using the driver HP Color LaserJet 2605dn_2605dtn PCL 6 version 12/02/2005,60.053.45.00.

Good luck,

Matt

Hi

The printer is using LPR and can listen to port 515 with the same driver HP Color LaserJet 2605dn_2605dtn PCL 6 version 12/02/2005,60.053.45.00
I can se in the conole that the printer trying to print every now and then and then returns the LPR communication failed error. iManger shows "Input Tray Elevation Failure: LPR Error: 32 from LprSendControlFile()" If I delete all jobs in the queu printer status turn to Idle. If I print a test page the printer ends up with LPR Communication Failed again. Think I try all variants now and the printer still dont work!?

Re: LPR Communication Failed

I think the problem is solved. The printer use LPR and respond on port 515, but
not 9100. I reseted the printer to factory defaults and started over. Now it respond on both 515 and 9100 and seems to print properly so far 🙂
