Hi Bosses!

 

We are facing a problem with printing on our hp-ux 11.23. The spooler, scheduler are all running but we cannot print to any of our network printers.

 

Any help?

 

Thank you

Re: printing

Can you ping the name and IP of the network printers?

Re: printing

What does lpstat show for your printers?

Are they connect to remove or to network printers?
