modify print queue

Just something I have never done yet.

Had to replace a jetdirect for an existing printer. The older jetdirect was using port 2501 and I need to modify the queue to use port 9100.
What is the correct way to accomplish this ?
init/queue ?
set queue ?
init seems to be the only one with option for hostname/ip:port

Re: modify print queue


apart from the port number I would expect that the IP also changed, but you may have taken care of that.

And if you want to retain queue name and other settings,
will achieve what you want.

This is VMS: it is easy as that!


Have one on me.

Don't rust yours pelled jacker to fine doll missed aches.

Re: modify print queue

That took care of it.
I had issue attempting to stop the queue as it was stalled.

stop/queue/reset queue_name took care of that.

Init/Queue/Processor=tcpip$telnetsym/On="hostname:9100" queue_name

start/queue queue_name

Thanks !!

Re: modify print queue

I wrote an automated procedure that generates the print queues. Simply delete the old queue and run the procedure.

You will prompted for everything necessary to build the queue.

Search my login.com for MYMENU. You should be able to find it from there.

Re: modify print queue

THanks Tom.

I did find your script and it did lead me to the solution.

I/we are overly cautios as we do not want to break anything and spend more hours trying to fix.

Thanks for the note.

Hope things are going well. Say hi to Peter.
