Parallel port problem on Ultra 5/sol. 2.5.1

Parallel port problem on Ultra 5/sol. 2.5.1

Post by Frédéric Trastou » Fri, 03 Apr 1998 04:00:00


I have a novajet 42proe printer connected to the // port of my Ultra 5
running Solaris 2.5.1.

I usually 'cat' printer files directly on the // port :
cat toto.rtl > /dev/ecpp0

This kind of command works properly on all the other worsktations I have
tried ( Sparc 5, Sparc 10, Ultra 1 ) with /dev/bpp0.

On the ultra 5, after one or two prints, the printer stops before the
end and I have to reboot the worstation to be able to do another print.

Could somebody help me ?
