Odd Printing problems.

By TobeJ ·
Hi there I have migrated some of our network printing from a NW 4.11 server to a Nw 5.1 server this weekend. Now when the user prints "Through a DOS app" the jobs goes through, but there are missing charcters or added charcters on the print job.

So here are the configs of the printers....

Printing through legacy DOS app, with loaded Pserver on novell 5.1 server no NDPS. ALL LPT printing no serial connection.....

That is all.

Any help would be appericated.

Thanks

Toby

Did you delete the old printer, print queue, and print server objects and recreate them after the upgrade? Print setups almost never seem to make it through NW upgrades.

Hi there,

In this case we removed a server out of the tree and used another server running NW 5.1 to run the print services for the downed NW 4 server. So what I did was create a new PQue / Printer object and had it serviced buy the NW 5.1 Pserver. It would not work properly...... So since I didn't delete the
old PQue / Printer objects, I set the nprinter to run off of those. It works fine now.... I don't understand why though....
Any ideas?

Thanks.

Toby

Is the DOS application sending to a queue (I have done it through UNICON) or directly to the printers via IP?
If it is through IP, you may need to change the settings under PCL on each printer.
If through UNICON, then you can change the form settings on the server.
