Printing problems from clients to server using Samba on SuSE 7.3 Pro

Printing problems from clients to server using Samba on SuSE 7.3 Pro

Post by Roger » Sun, 16 Jun 2002 01:45:28

Hello  All,

First let me thank Shaun Marolf and Robert for getting me to where I
am to date.  

I don't know if this is a Samba problem or a SuSE problem, therefore I
am posting in both groups.

When attempting to print from any of my clients I get the following
messages:  I have reduced the output to what I think is the pertinent
info.           1st message = apsfilter:  unable to print job

2nd message = printer hpphoto job cfA084rogers.mallard failed and
could not be retried.  
IF filter 'y2prn_hpphoto.upp--auto-hpphoto' filter msg - 'a2ps:
'Text" is a binary file, printing aborted
IF filter (same as above) filter msg - '%%[ Error: typecheck;
OffendingCommand:  closefile ]%%
IF filter (same as above) filter msg - 'GNU Ghostscript 6.51:
Unrecoverable error, exit code 1'
exit status 'JABORT'

I can print from the server no problem.  Have never been able to print
from clients.

I think the problem is the "binary" file-----why would this happen?

Same setup in Redhat 7.2 professional and I have no problems printing
from server and clients.

This message is the same every time I try to print from my clients.  

Where should I look to try and solve this problem....have perused SuSE
and Samba support database with no help.

Any help would be appreciated.  I will provide any other info that
would be deemed helpful.

Testparm and all other network configs are okay.......From the client
I can access my home directories and write to or delete from same.  I
can capture the printer port.  On the client I can see the printer job
spooling and then it disappears.

1. : Setting Up A Dial In Server Using SuSE 7.3 Pro


I have made the necessary changes to the following files on a
SuSE 7.0 Pro Linux distro to support for a dial-in and it worked:


Now that I have upgraded to SuSE 7.3 Pro, the modifications that
I made to the SuSE 7.0 Pro is no longer working.  The
/var/log/messages for the dial-in as shown below:

        Feb  4 23:16:42 linux pppd[7530]: Using interface ppp0
        Feb  4 23:16:42 linux pppd[7530]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS15
        Feb  4 23:16:49 linux pppd[7530]: user inyen logged in
        Feb  4 23:16:50 linux pppd[7530]: found interface eth0 for
proxy arp
        Feb  4 23:16:50 linux pppd[7530]: local  IP address
        Feb  4 23:16:50 linux pppd[7530]: remote IP address
        Feb  4 23:17:47 linux pppd[7530]: Hangup (SIGHUP)
        Feb  4 23:17:47 linux pppd[7530]: Modem hangup
        Feb  4 23:17:47 linux pppd[7530]: Connection terminated.
        Feb  4 23:17:47 linux pppd[7530]: Connect time 1.1 minutes.
        Feb  4 23:17:47 linux pppd[7530]: Sent 73 bytes, received 2346
        Feb  4 23:17:48 linux pppd[7530]: Exit.

said the dial-in user, inyen, had successfully logged in with an
IP address of; however, I could not connect to any
website or even download my e-mail and when I went to other
computer, a win2k (on the same subnet with IP address, and did a "ping" to no avail.  The
"ping" returned "Request timed out".  This looked like the the
linux machine failed to forward/route the packets from/to my
machine.  Does anyone out here have any idea what I am missing?
