print queue stuck in digital unix V4.0 system while printing to printer connected to windows system

print queue stuck in digital unix V4.0 system while printing to printer connected to windows system. Anybody can help and suggest what cud be the root cause of this problem ?

To fix the problem we have to clear the print queues and restart the daemon (lpd)

Hi,

Did you look in /var/adm/syslog.dated/current/lpr.log for any revelant information?

You may have to change the priority level in syslogd for lpr messages. Edit file /etc/syslog.conf and look for a line like this:
lpr.info /var/adm/syslog.dated/lpr.log

Change it to:
lpr.debug /var/adm/syslog.dated/lpr.log

To get syslogd to reconfigure you have to:
# kill -HUP
