jetdirect printer prints garbled

By compsol ·
I installed a HPjetdirect 500x print server with an Okidata Microline 320 Turbo printer to be used by 2 workstations with win98se using the jetdirect software (last version checked) the Jetdirect test page confirmed that it is ok and recognized, butwhenever I print documents from either workstations it prints well the first page and then starts printing garbled info. In both workstations I used the jetdirect software. The network has an NT4 server dedicated fileserver with DHCP. It is about 300 ft away from the workstations

It sounds like you may need to download the latest drivers and apply them to the workstations. Somewhere during the install of the Jetdirect software, they may have been corrupted.

since you have the latest version of the drivers you may wan to install the DLC protocol on whatever computer has the printer drivers. The DLC protocol is designed top go directly to the JetDirect interface card on the printer. Hope this helps! ---jas

Sounds to me like the printserver is sending a postscript signal to the printer. I would check the setting on the print server to make sure it is sending PCL (Printer Common Lang.) not PS (Post Script)
