long dos print jobs fail to complete

recently set up iprint on a nw6.5 server with 3 win98 clients. a legacy 
dos app (Commit) requires printing to LPT ports 2 and 3. i have set up 2 
queues and set the 2 printer objects to service jobs from the queues. the 
queues are captured via the Novell N taskbar utility. (not my preference)
the printers are a Laserjet 1100 and an Epson FX 1170 connected to a 
jetdirect 500x ethernet print box. all devices are directly connected to 
a small hub (make unknown) the server is a recent low end dell model.

test printing to lpt ports in dos using dir >lpt x is fine for both 
printers. and also running reports, invoices and delivery dockets from 
Commit works ok. these are sent to the epson.

the problem is when a large report or several delivery dockets are sent 
to the epson. printing fails after about 3 quarters of the document is 
printed. eg stops on the 6th page out of 9 or 10. when the test is 
repeated it stops at the same point. i am told this is the same for the 
laserjet.

it is only these long dos print jobs that are causing the problem.

when i had the captures in a login script i would occasionally get an 
error saying the queue could not be found when trying to capture to it. 
(sorry cant remember the exact error) i could not resolve this 
intermitant error so we ended up capturing via the novell taskbar utility.

i dont know the history of the server except that it was put in around 4 
months ago. before i set up ndps they had rprinter loaded with one 
printer hanging off the server and the other was a windows shared printer 
on one of the pcs. ipx was bound on the server which i removed.

the pcs could all do with a rebuild of 98 as there is a lot of junk on 
them.

any ideas about why long dos print jobs are failing ??

thanks,
nick.

NDPS print jobs do not print completely
Please help. We are having problems on multiple HP Jetdirect printers when using NDPS. The jobs are not printed completely, the last few pages do not get printed. - When printing from a windows XP client directly to the IP adress of the JetDirect card (bypassing the NDPS agent) the job prints out fine. It looks like this might be a solution: "Solution ID : 1.0.47361435.2480167 Here is the solution: Some print jobs getting truncated. Set the default capture timeout to 10 seconds" But where do I set this, and how? Hi Which gateway are you u...

print jobs to iprint printers fail via citrix session
OK, I have exhausted every thing that I can think off and now I need some assistance. I have an issue with clients printing to an iPrint printer from within citrix. Here are the details: NW65SpP5, client4.91sp2, WinXPsp2, iPrint4.15, WS2003, and Citrix MPS3.0 I connect to the citrix server using an ICA session. All necessary mappings occur, to include the iPrint mappings. I know this because I can see them on the server and on the client. Print jobs sent to the iPrint printer fail or never print. If the printer is installed in any other way on the client, ie NDPS, Local, o...

Having what seems like SP6 iprint issues but i'm on sp5. Print jobs stall, printer needs attention ping failed etc
I have 3 sites all running Netware 6.5 SP5. Client is 4.20. It's worked pretty flawlessly which is why I've avoided SP6. Anyway 2 days ago I started to get lots of calls about prints not going anywhere. If I looked at the NDPS manager, a lot of printers would say they need attention some unable to ping, even though I could ping them. Or they would say "printing" but they weren't. I've restarted that server and that resolved it for a day. Unplugging the printer and plugging it back in will often trigger stuck jobs to print. This all happened sh...

iPrint Foxpro DOS app fails to recognize iPrint Printers
Here's the skinny: We migrated to OES2 on Linux. We used to use DOS queue's and now use the iCapture system which works great. We have a FoxPro application that reports back printer arrays and shows all printers connected to the workstation may it be direct IP, directly connected or iPrint connected. The issue is that the iPrint printers using addresses \ipp://printers.domainname.com\printername are grayed out from being able to be selected. Anything connected directly using ip print or local work fine. Anyone have any ideas? Screenshot won't fit into...

iprint jobs not printing
I'm running iprint on a netware 6.5 server and I'm having some problems with print jobs sent from various applications including firehouse and microsoft publisher. Here's the problem: when printing from the application, the application says it could not print. The iprint icon in the system tray says the job printed, but it printed zero pages. Depending on the application, the print job will either go pending on the server and never print, or just not show up on the server side at all. Any idea of what's going on? -- patrickhopkins -----------------------...

iPrint not printing the end of the job
We've had problems with people printing from various programs such as Word and it doesn't print the end of the job like not printing the last 3 pages of a 20 page document. We're on Netware 6.5 sp2 with the iPrint 3.09 client. Has this been a known problem with it not printing the end of some print jobs or some print jobs not printing? Could it be where something times out? I had this problem with a user recently. Updating the printer driver on the workstation resolved the problem.

Long pause before job prints
Server NW 6.5.4 OES, 15 NDPS Novell gateway printers, all IP, all static addresses. Desktop is XP SP2. After submitting print job, application pauses 1-2 minutes while job spools. Occurs whether job is simple or complex, all printer models. Seems to have started about 6-8 months ago, possibly from XP patches (windows update). Print settings data format is RAW, have tried printing directly to printer as well as spooling, no difference. Have you looked at this TID?

Some iPrint Jobs Just Do Not Print
Hello, I am running NetWare v6.5 small business suite SP1. Some iPrint jobs just do not print. The same jobs printed fine when I was using queue based printing. The jobs that fail are the jobs that take a number of minutes (e.g. 10 - 12) to generate before they are ready to be sent to the printer. I think these jobs send an attention command to the printer. Next, the report is generated (this takes between 10 and 12 minutes) meanwhile, the printer is waiting but the job is not ready and the printer times out or thinks the job is canceled. The report has the following...

NDPS failed print jobs
Hi, Guys, I need a little advice. Netware 6.0 SP3 is the server. I have setup NDPS printing and tested it all before I went 'live'. It all seemed to work alright, so I pushed it out to other departments (big mistake, I chose the Accounts/Payroll department). Problem 1. There is a HP LJ6P printer using the HP gateway which does not print the whole job. On an Excel spreadsheet (single page document) it prints the whole of the left hand column but only about half of the rest of the sheet. On a small text document like an email printout, it only prints about half. Th...

Long docs not printing to completion
We've just upgraded the HP gateway to V3.0. Any idea why since the upgrade longish Word documents printed to a LJ 6P stop printing after 10-12 pages?

I'd try the Novell Gateway, they seem to be less "buggy".
