Problem printing by AXP with Open VMS 7.32 on HP2300n

Hi,
In our AXP DS20 with Open VMS 3.3.2 and DCPS version 2.3 we cannot print in a network printer HP 2300n. The queue still in status busy.
The queue characteristics are the follow:
> sh queue mau /full
Printer queue MAU, idle, on THAHMC::"10.2.20.17:9100", mounted form
DCPS$DEFAULT (stock=DEFAULT)
/BASE_PRIORITY=4
/DEFAULT=(FEED,FORM=DCPS$DEFAULT (stock=DEFAULT))
/LIBRARY=DCPS$DEVCTL Lowercase /OWNER=[1,4]
/PROCESSOR=DCPS$SMB
/PROTECTION=(S:M,O:D,G:R,W:S) /RETAIN


The DCPS logical names are the follow:
"DCPS$LAYUP" = "SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP.EXAMPLES.DCPS]"
"DCPS$MAU_NO_SYNCH" = "1"
"DCPS$MAU_PID" = "206008BA"
"DCPS$VERSION" = "V2.3"


Thanks in advance for any help.

Printer queue MAU, idle, on THAHMC::"10.2.20.17:9100",

is should be THAHMC::"IP_rawtcp/10.2.20.17:9100"

You have defined it like a telnetstym, and your symbiont is a dcps one.

Sorry, I forgot to say what is the problem.

When we try to print with the following command:

PRINT/QUEUE=MAU filename.txt

The queue goes and stay in STARTING status.

> sh queue mau
Printer queue MAU, busy, on THAHMC::"10.2.20.17:9100", mounted form DCPS$DEFAULT (stock=DEFAULT)
Entry Jobname Username Blocks Status
----- ------- -------- ------ ------
55 PRNTG THAI 1 Starting

Thanks

Hi Maurizio,

I guess the correct logical is DCPS$MAU_NO_SYNC. So, remove "H" from above logical and then stop/start the queue again.

HTH,
Thanks & regards,

What would you do with your life if you knew you could not fail?

Incidentally, speaking of DCPS$_NO_SYNC logical, it's only necessary for those printers that don't recognize DCPS's synchronization sequence. See http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/732final/dcps_mguide/dcps023_mguide_003.html#sec_nosync . I believe LJ2300n doesn't need that at all. I use quite a bit of them without defining this logical and have never experienced any sync problem, even in language autosensing mode. Ditto LJ4300n or, I think, any current HP PostScript printer listed in DCPS SPD.
