Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

I need to configure remote printer Kyocera FS-1020D on hp-ux 11.11
I am able to add the printer through lpadmin but unable to send a test printout from the server.
I tried following steps:
1. /usr/sbin/lpshut
2. /usr/sbin/lpadmin -pLNTPR01_1 -v/dev/null -mHPGL2 -ob3 -ocmrcmodel -osmrsmodel -orc -ormlntpr01.aam.net -orplp
3. /usr/sbin/accept LNTPR01_1
4. /usr/bin/enable LNTPR01_1
5. /usr/sbin/lpsched

This particular printer follows the HP Laserjet(HPGL2) emulation and internal printer queue name as "lp" I tried giving HPGL2 and dumb as model but no success.

Hi,

Is the priner configured on your remote server? What is the printer name on the remote server?

Maybe you should have used -mrmodel instead of -mHPGL2, if the printer is configured and working on your remote server.


bueno day,

robert

No the printer is not attached with remote server. And yes i did tried rmodel aswell but still no go.

Ok, to get the obvious out of the way,
1) Can you ping the printer's IP address?
2) Is the printer connected to a print server?
3) Do you have Jet DIrect installed? And if so, did you try configuring the printer using Jet DIrect?

I too have a Kyocera printer to configure, so this will help me too.

Re: Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

ok here you go:

1) Can you ping the printer's IP address?
- yes
2) Is the printer connected to a print server?
- No
3) Do you have Jet DIrect installed? And if so, did you try configuring the printer using Jet DIrect?
Yes, I got the output as below:

!! No response from 203.101.96.43 !!
... (trying to ping 203.101.96.43)


The HP JetAdmin utility can ping the device. The problem may be:
* incorrect GET community name!
* it is not a network printer!
* other.

Re: Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

can we start with some real basic stuff, as in:

You configured this as a "remote" printer. That means that either the printer is connected to an external print server (unix, windows, external print server box) or it has an interface card builtin that understands the LPR protocols.

Which of the above applies (if any)?

Can you describe *how* the printer is actually attached, and what its attached to?

oldschool- Yes this has an interface card builtin that understands the LPR protocols.


"Can you describe *how* the printer is actually attached, and what its attached to?"

The printer is in india and the network which it needs to connect is in US. We have a VPN tunnel created between the two. Printer is pingable from the US site.

Re: Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

I'm just not 100% on the remote printer name you're using, "lp".

You could add it via Jet Direct, when you get the repsonse you posted,
The HP JetDirect Printer Installer for Unix can ping the device.
The problem may be:
* incorrect GET community name!
* it is not a network printer!
* other.
Answer "y" to continue
Then select option 2 Ignore it and continue.
And then you can select a HP printer model or dumbplot.
Select option 4) Other
Select item 1 to change the printer name to what you want.

I set mine up that way, I'm just waiting for someone at the remote location to confirm if it printed or not.

Re: Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

Did you open up the necessary ports on the printer side of the VPN tunnel for LPR printing? (And jetdirect if you are going to use that).

what ports do i need to get open?

Re: Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

LPR mode uses port 515/tcp on the destination side. So you need to allow that port going from the server towards the printer on the firewals at each side of the tunnel.

Re: Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

Yes 515 port is open.

Re: Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

With a VPN tunnel there is a firewall on each side, one on the server site and one on the printer site. Port 515 needs to be allowed outwards from the server to the printer on both firewalls. Also you need to have your firewall person monitor the packets and see if indeed the packets are going through or are getting dropped. It is not a simple configuration to open port 515 only. There are additional settings to allow port 515 from the printer to talk back to the server port. The server port is probably dynamic so the firewall should be configured for that. Having the firewall person say "it is open" is not enough.

ok thanks ttr, i will get that checked.

Robert- Did the method of jetdirect work for you?

Re: Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

I still haven't received a reply from the site. And I don't have any contacts there. The queue sent the job, just don't know 100% that it printed correctly.

Robert- Even i tried with jetadmin now but still no success. Were you able to configure your kyocera properly?

Re: Kyocera FS-1020D Printer Setup

I managed to get this su!@#r finally work!! The trick was to find the default emulation that this printer was following which was confusing since the docs of kyocera are really misleading. It uses PCL6 HP Laserjet emulation by default. I added this printer by using jetadmin and gave HP Laserjet PCL6p.
