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... ( second time around )
I have tried reinstalling the printer from the original CD then adding a port to the server, and tried pulling the drivers off the server directly...

This is a known bug with NT SP4 machines that are printing to an LPD port. Apply Service Pack 5 and it will go away.

Sorry, not going to try that. Did find that the NT server printer setup was spooling in NT EMF format. The only option on the Win9x clients was RAW. Set the Server to spool RAW and the print jobs work. Thanks anyways.

this might help you out....

Try useing a MODE CON command in the bat file for the executable.

The Syntax is:

MODE CON:cols=<columns per line> lines=<vertical line per screen>

Please note that only 40 or 80 are valid values for the cols switch.

there are some other obscure mode switches, so if that doesn't work, lemme know.
