Netware Printer Server and Jet Direct

By rick_b ·
I just installed a HP Jet Direct Print Server on a NW 4.1 network. I created the Print server and the printer as well as the queue in NDS. I added the queue to the printer and the printer to the print server and cannot get the printer to print. It states ready all the time.
Here is the configuration:
Print Layout
HP Jet Direct
!\Okidata_SBS
\Okidata_SBS_Q
The print server states running. The printer states offline and the queue says ready.
I have an IPX address, but cannot get the printer state online. I have the pserver running on the Netware server.The printer is physically on and states online on the front.The hardware Pserver is HP Office Connect 170x Print Server.
The program that needs this printer only uses IPX, so IP isnot an option. Any of your Netware Guru's know how to get this printer to state online in NDS and print.

You don't need the PServer running on the server, that's what the Jet Direct will do for you. Unload the Pserver and the restart the Jet Direct. The two are probably conflicting since the Jet Direct will try to log in as the Print Server's name. That should take care of it. Also be careful about using the 3.2 client with Jet Admin, we've had some problems getting them to work with NDS logins on that.

Forget using Novell to create the queues, and do not run pserver.
Download and use the latest version of HP jetadmin and reset the 170x by unplugging it.
then hold down the test button and plug it in and hold down the button for a few seconds. Then use Jetadmin and create the printer and queues sending jobs directly to the 170x. DON'T use pserver. Also remember never name the print server ,queue, and jetdirect printer the same name it never works. Use for example oki, oki_ps, oki_q.
