Printing to IP Printer

By rgooding ·
O/S: AIX 4.3.3
Printer: Fujitsu 6600
1 Blk = 512K

When sending a job to the printer (setup as an IP printer) that is around 20 blocks or more the job gets requeued and then the printer goes down. The job is usually in the second copy of the output when this occurs. Any jobs that is less that 20 blocks prints OK. This occurs on 3 printers of the same brand... I am in a deep discussion that it may be on the printer side and not the server side...but...I need to prove them wrong..

Any help would be appreciated.
TIA.
Richard

what about testing as local parallel printer, turn off spooling...see if the problem occurs. if it does, it's the printer...
or try to 'break' things more somehow, have some kind of influence on the problem, by:
taking out, moving printer RAM
turn memory settings way up or way down inside printer
leave on network but turn off spooling...
try another emulation/printer language...

I forgot to mention a couple of items: We used to print from the server through a novel queue.. and that worked well.
Also there is a jetdirect box sitting between the unix server and the printer. I have move the JD box to other printer and have no problem..
I agree that it is most likely the printer that "needs adjusting".
