remote & local printer with generic or manufacturer driver

hi,

i've got two rp24xx (30/70) with hpux 11.11 and jetadmin (10.34), one of my printers (rex-rotary model 3508/4508) works fine with the rp2430 but not on the 2470, i use net_genericpcl3printer driver on the two servers.
with the 2430, the jobs are correctly printed,
with the 2470, only one line is printed (CR/LF
problem). The solution about escape sequence
don't work. The temporary solution is to install a remote printer on the 2470 to send jobs to the 2430 but when the 2430 is down, nobody can print. This printer is a critical printer, so, i've tried to install the manufacturer's driver but no jobs can be print, when i type lpstat -t, i see : printer sending ... to ... and that's all, i must to cancel the jobs. I can ping the printer, the servers are on the same network with identical
ip class.

can you help me ?

thanks.

Re: remote & local printer with generic or manufacturer driver

Here is the remote printer configuration procedure from HP, I've tested it on both versions of HP-UX; 10.20 and 11.00.
From client:
a) ps -ef | grep rlp
b) rlpdaemon running?
c) kill PID rlpdaemon
d) vi /etc/inetd.conf
e) printer stream tcp nowait root /usr/lib/rlpdaemon rlpdaemon -i -l (* THIS SYNTAX IS CORRECT*)
f) inetd -c
From both server and client:
a) vi /etc/hosts
b) add client/server ip
c) ping client/server ip
d) verify printer works for local print jobs on server
From server:
a) lpstat -t (* printer exists *)
b) /usr/lib/lpadmin -x printer (* NOW DELETE *)
c) /usr/lib/lpshut (* stop lpsched *)
d) /usr/lbin/lpadmin -p local_printer_name -mrmode1 -v/dev/null -ocmrcmode1 -osmrsmode1 -orm -orp
e) /usr/bin/enable local_printer_name
f) /usr/bin/accept local_printer_name
g) /usr/lib/lpsched

Re: remote & local printer with generic or manufacturer driver

sorry,

after a long search, and a comparison of the servers, it was a problem
of rights on /var/spool/lp sub-directory,
now, it works fine.
Thanks,
i keep this method for furthers print problems.
