still print problems with iprntnw65sp6e

Hello,

Iprntnw65sp6e does not fix the following problem, which does not occur with the NetWare SP5 NDPSGW.NLM:

We are printing long jobs (hundrets of pages) to a Epson DLQ 5000+ dot matrix printer, which is connected over a HP Jetdirect card.

With iprntnw65sp6e the jobs end after maybe 16 or 20 pages, goes into retained state and prints again. So the job never ends.

It seems, that the new iprntnw65sp6e NDPSGW.NLM recognize a problem and tries to print again the "failed" job.


We have also still the problem, if our AS/400 prints a job with copies over LPR to our NDPS Manager. Then after SP6 the jobs never ends. The job will be transmitted again and again. It seems that the new NDPS manager does not feed back to the AS/400, that the LPR job is already transmitted. This did not happen with the SP5 NDPS manager (LPR2NDPS.NLM).
Novell open incident SR # 10313864243

With those two NLMs we are having troubles, too - but they differ to
your experience. Mainly connection errors and stuck or missing print
jobs. Hopefully there will be a solution especially for the
LPR2NDPS.NLM problems, as this seems to be not widely in use.

Forget it!

Same unresolved issues regarding LPR/RAW printing as with the psp6e
NDPSGW. I already forwarded a complete client/server server/printer
packet trace to Novell of failing jobs. And the old one just works - I
do not see the necessity to reinvent the LPR protocol, if that's gives
so many problems.

Can you let me know who you are working with?? Who did you send the
trace files to??

To Pam Robello regarding the psp6e gateway. But the psp6f gateway
exhibits the same behaviour. I could also provide you with print jobs,
which do produce the errors - first cancelled afterwards printed - just
tell me if you want them catched in the Windows print spool directory
or in the NDPS queue. All those jobs print without any problem with the
Sp5 gateway or outside of Novell (Windows, Linux or Solaris).
