LPT port config problem Novell NPRINTER

By richnosal ·
Trying to setup printer with NPRINTER from Novell Netware 5. Printer will print from DOS or Windows, but NPRINTER keeps giving me an error "LPT1 is not supported on this workstation" I can access this printer from other workstations running NPRINTERbut not the workstation attached to the printer.

Then you should redirect your LPT1 to the same location the other stations use. Instead of printing locally (to LPT1), use the print queue everyone else uses.

thats another problem, NPRINTER will not attach to queue do to this problem. Im useing NPRINTER because it is a local printer (dot matrix) this computer acts as the print server for this printer i guess. The other machine that can attach to the printer which is not local runs Win 95 the local machine is win 98, could that be the problem? E-mail me at richn@sevgraph.com for more specific symptoms. Thanks

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you're using the DOS based NPRINTER on a Win98 platform. According to Novell, that is not supported. What you can do is use NPTWIN95.EXE. Refer to Novell TID #2907959 and #10019104 for tips and info on this utility.

Hope it helps!

NPRINTER was working when we received this computer, it worked for about 3 months then on a server shutdown and restart it stopped.
