Weird print que issue

I am trying to init some new HP printer que on my openvms 7.3.1 (though I knew how to do this) and i keep getting 'invalid device' when I try to start que que - here is my syntax:

$init/que/on=node::"xxx.xx.xx.xx:9100" quename

it takes this

then

$start/que quename - this is when i get invalid device. what is wrong with this syntax? If I show existing que's they display exactly like above.

Re: Weird print que issue

Just a guess - don't you need a processor (/PROCESSOR=TCPIP$TELNETSYM, for instance)for this one works:

Printer queue HPTN2100, stopped, on DIANA::"192.168.0.251:9100",
mounted form DEFAULT
/BASE_PRIORITY=4 /DEFAULT=(FEED,FORM=DEFAULT) /OWNER=[SYSTEM]
/PROCESSOR=TCPIP$TELNETSYM /PROTECTION=(S:M,O:D,G:R,W:S)

BTW: Since you seem to use HP printers, it might be a consideration to install and configure DCPS.
