Problem adding LaserJet 1022n to iPrint

Hi Guys

We have a couple of LaserJet 1022n's in one of our offices.
I have a problem with iPrint and the Laserjet 1022n. It fails to ping,
and then it displays LPR communication error.

It has the right IP, and I can ping it from the server???

Any ideas?

Yes, the 1022 is quite simple. Most? iPrint Administrators have been
confused when they try to print the test page. If you try to print a
document from any other program it´s probably working. I would prefer to set
it up as a raw (port 9100) printer also.
Maybe you´ll manage to communicate better if you set it as "direct printer".

Hi Åke

Hmm, that's too bad. No, we can't set it right on the machines, as it's
for accomodating our traveling users, when they arrive to one of our
offices, they'll just go to the specified webpage, and they install the
printers from there.

'direct', you meen as a windows printer right? not letting it through
iPrint/NDPS.

I wonder if you're seeing the same problem as with 1320n. Try using
port9100 and this

No, iPrint has a direct mode that basically stops it spooling via the
server. It's still an iPrint printer but the iPrint server doesn't really
do anything with the print job.

Well, I've tried setting the NOSNMP, but it still says 'Error Printing'
😞

Try RAW-mode. IE. Change agent gateway load string to

NDPSGW PORT=RAW HOSTADDRESS=<printer IP>

instead of

NDPSGW PORT=LPR HOSTADDRESS=<printer IP> PRINTERNAME=raw

and restart agent.

Easiest way to do that is from NDPSmanager web page:

https://server:8009/PsmStatus

You're the man! It shows a happy face now, all green and nice.
Now I just have to get the local IT guy to do a testprint, to see if it
actually works.

Thankyou!

That printer type uses so called "host based drivers". Those are not
LPR-compatible but do work with RAW. Test-print will probably fail,
though. You need to print from some application to really test it.

Those are the HP printer types that don't work well in NDPS/iPrint
environment.
