NDPS LPR won't accept document with long file name

We're having trouble sending print jobs to NDPS agents via LPR when the
document name is long (eg
jygfwhegfwlfgbwljhefbwlghberglhwrbgwbgwlhgfbwlehfgbwefhwbelfhwbefwjhbflwjhfbwljefhbwljhfbwrjhgbwrjghberghbejfhvwfjhwbrgwrgbrlghrb.doc).
Mac users and design students seem to want to use long names for their
documents. The same job will go to the agent when using NDPS but when
using LPR on a Mac, the error "remote host did not accept control file
(66)' comes up on the spooler. When sending the job from windows, for
me the job disappears. The faculty support staff are telling me that
the clients are actually stopping the agent from accepting jobs after
this error occurs.

Has anybody seen this issue and/or know a fix? I've tried searching
everywhere and can't find mention of it.

What NetWare version and what SP level are you using? Any chance of using
IPP instead of LPR for printing?

Re: NDPS LPR won't accept document with long file name

NW6.5 SP5 with post sp5 ndps and latest lpr2ndps.nlm. I get the same result
with IPP.

I've logged a call with Novell support but seemed to have stumped them so
far too. Hope I get a resolution soon as the Netware bashers in the
University are breathing down my back to resolve it or move the printing to
a Windows server.
