The Question is:
I have a Digital LG14Plus line printer with a RapidPrint 500 attached to it.
It has a class-C IP address. I set up a printer queue using
p2: "IP_rawTCP/ip_address:2001" (where ip_address is the IP-address of the
When the command file is executed, it creates a print queue with PRINTER$XXX
and is in idle state. I typed a print command to PRINTER$XXX, and its printer
queue status says "Starting". It just stays at this status forever.
I'm running DCPS V2.3. Did I missed any setup?
The Answer is :
The LG14+ series printer is a line printer and does not provide
a Postscript engine or Postscript printing capabilities, and is
accordingly incompatible with DECprint Services (DCPS) printer
expectations; this and similar printers cannot be used with DCPS.
Please use an LPR or Telnet symbiont queue for IP access to the
printer via the RapidPrint 500 server. For general information
on this, please see the TCP/IP Services documentation (or the
documentation of the particular IP stack in use), and please see
topics here including (1020).
