Telnetsym Error 660 on HP Printer?

» close window

The Question is:

Trying to print using tcpip$telnetsym and receiving errors:
 Open_socket_ast invoked with bad IOSB 660.
This is a HP printer on our network.
Printer queue EASTP, stalled, on HSSTST::"",
mounted form DEFAULT
  Entry  Jobname         Username     Blocks  Status
  -----  -------         --------     ------  ------
      4  SYSTARTUP_VMS   SYSTEM           33  Stalled
         Submitted  2-AUG-2000 14:23:31.70 /FORM=DEFAULT /PRIORITY=100
         File: _HSSTST$DKA0:[SYS0.SYSMGR]SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM;4 (printing))

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard will assume this is TCP/IP Services V5.0A.
  There is usually additional information accompanying the 660
  error code, information which often points to a more specific
  cause or problem.  (One common cause is a too-fast retry for
  the printer, resulting in a connection error from the printer.)
  Please also see the assortment of discussions on HP Printers and
  Telnetsym printing here in Ask The Wizard, particularly starting
  with topic 1020.  (Information on adjusting the retry interval is
  included there.)
  You will want to contact the Compaq Customer Support Center, and
  you should expect to be asked for relevent information on the
  particular HP Printer and on the contents of relevent log files,
  as well as for any information accompanying the 660 error.
