NT4sp4 LPR printer & Win95 client jobs g

By williamj ·
TCP/IP Print service is installed and running on the NT server, and sp4 was reapplied. The printer is an HP 5000 on an Icon server with TCP/IP enabled on the BINARY_P1 port, as suggested by Icon. The LPR port is pointing at the Icon address and named port. Sharing is set for NT and Win95, drivers all loaded on the NT server, share name is hp5000. NT workstations can print, no problem. Win9x clients see the printer, can install it, and their jobs go through the server queue... Then they just go away... Nothing in the event viewer, no errors, nothing...

Install the windows 95 driver off the CD into one of the local windows 95 machines and try it again. I thionk the problem is the driver that the machines are installing from the server.

Good Luck!

Sorry, I have tried that. Interesting note:
Add printer from NT WS did not work properly, had to open Net 'hood then open the Server and open the print queue to get installed right.

First thing, I had a HP 5000 printer. They are the worst. If you havn't had any repair done to it yet prepare for the worst. I got a full refund from hp. They told me there was only 500 made because they screwed up so badly. I agree with answer#1, remove the printer from the 9x machines(clients) and reinstall but this time getting the driver off of the cd. I have had this happen to me a couple of times. It this solution worked.

Good Luck!!
