Printing from PLP to Solaris 2.3

Printing from PLP to Solaris 2.3

Post by Anders Sund » Wed, 19 Jan 1994 01:52:22



I have problem printing from  PLP client running SunOS 4.1.x to Solaris 2.3
print server.

The scenario is:

        1. Solaris 2.3 --> PLP                       (works)
        2. Solaris 2.3 --> SunOS 4.1.x lpd   (works)
        3. SunOS 4.1.x lpd --> Solaris 2.3   (works)
        4. PLP  --> SunOS 4.1.x lpd          (fails)
        5. PLP  --> Solaris 2.3              (fails)

The version of PLP is release 3.0, 7 Nov. 1988

The error message from PLP when I print to Solaris 2.3 is

Printer 'qms' (taurus.anl.luth.se) ANL-QMS, PS-laser (Rum F 1060, ANL):
Warning: no server present
  transfer dfA565taurus.anl.luth.se to vega5 failed Mon Jan 17 16:51:50 1994
  Rank Owner       Pr Job Host        Files                Size   Date
   1st root        Z  565 taurus      slask                4598   Jan 17 16:37
no entries

I can't find any logs about the transaction on the Solaris 2.3 print server
(vega5).

Has anyone experienced this before and is there a patch for this?

1. Printer filter for PLP version 3.4.12 on Solaris 2.3

Hi there:

I am looking for a copy of printer filter for running PLP version 3.4.12
on Solaris 2.3.

The main purpose of this filter is to be able to identify the different  
file format such as ascii, dvi, or postscript and be able to print
them on a postscript printer.

If we can ftp the filter and use it for FREE, we would be deeply          
appreciated.

Thanks in advance....
