print queue

By rlucio ·
server is novell 4.1, stations are 95/98 and the printer is hp 4050n. the users are running an old acctg software, HBS, its DOS application. when 2 or more would print simultaneously or almost at same time, only one print job will be sent to the printer while all the rest are dumped and sent back to the applications database as temp file, print??.$$*.

any comments why and possible solution.

Make sure the network printer is captured to LPT1 port on the client PCs.

i have tried this solution, however, this posed another type of problem. the queue was there but the printout was not proper, instead of printing in a compressed landscape it prints in portrait and in big fonts. everytime you use lpt1 either directly connect the printer or capture the local port, the printout is not what it should be.

thanks for your help and effort, i appreciate it.

Since your question is so old, you might as well just reload the latest versions of all software, and you'll have a new set of problems to deal with. Heck, update all your hardware and operating systems while you're at it. Have a real party.
