How can WARP print to a WFWG print server?

How can WARP print to a WFWG print server?

Post by Jeff Colli » Sun, 09 Apr 1995 04:00:00



Hello.  I just finished installing Warp on a pee cee in my lab.  After
fighting w/ it for hours over the CDROM drive, I have most everything
working.

Now... The only printer I have access to is an HP LaserJet
(non-postscript) "shared" by another PC running WFWG 3.11.  The problem is
that a WinOS2 full screen session cannot "run the WFWG network driver."
Thus, it can't network print.  I resorted to making a full blown VDM and
eventually managed to get it to load all relevant files that it does on a
normal DOS boot.  To my dismay, I still get the same error message.

Any suggestions (short of moving the printer to a Unix box running a TCPIP
line printer daemon)??

Thought I might clarify.  I need to have Windoze programs print to the
WFWG server.  Don't yet have any native apps that I need to have print.

This is Warp for Windoze 3, installed over WFWG 3.11.  Also running Trumpet
Winsock and assorted Winsock goodies.

        Well, let me start by saying that Warp doesn't come with any of
the required software to use a NIC.  It's network support is solely
through the use of SL/ip or PPP.  What you really want is probably the
OS/2 Warp Connect package (once it's available) which talks to WFWG just
nicely.

        I have been Beta testing the product for several months now and
have it running very smoothly in a small peer network between 1 OS/2
system and 1 WFWG system.  I have not tried to use the WFWG system as a
printer spooler since the printer is on my OS/2 system.

Jeff,

The solution is Lantastic for OS/2.  You can get it for apx. $99.00, the only
problem is that WFWG cannot share OS/2 files and printers.  This won't be a
problem for you as you want WFWG to share it's printer.

Be careful of the NIC though Lantastic does not have a generic NE2000 driver,
you will have to do some hunting on the net at hobbes to find the file
ns2000.zip.

Good luck,

Steve

Or if you cannot wait for Warp Connect you may want to buy Lan Server 4.0 ...

I run a OS/2 LAN Server 4.0 requester against a WFWG, which spools print jobs
just fine. I have no problems using any of the resources at the WFWG machine
from my Warp with LS4. And from what I understand the Warp Connect should be
very similar to Warp + LS4 Requester...(?)

Warp doesn't support WFW networking.  WFW networking is MSNetBeui, networking
under WARP is either IPX/SPX (Novell) or NetBios (IBM).  With the
installation of the full-blown TCP/IP 2.0 for OS/2 package you could print to
an IP based printer through LPRMON, but other than the other noted networking
systems, or the new Lantastic for OS/2, you are out of luck.

BTW:  It's been this way since 2.10 for Windows days.

Simplest solution? Get Lantastic for OS/2. It will connect with WfW.
Alternate? Get Win95 <g>.

Even better suggestion, wait about 6 weeks or so for Warp Connect and you'll have
full LAN connectivity.

1. Print servers and printing in general

Has anyone actually got an external print server to work with Warp?

I have one warp box, one ECS box and one solaris box
I also have a netgear ps104 hub which is 4 RJ45 and a parallel socket.
The printer is a HP laserjet 4L

The hub can function as a LPD server.

1) Printing ASCII text from either os2 box works but each print job is preceded by a page

2) Printing from the solaris box works for ASCII text but does not produce the extra page.

3) Neither OS can write anything that is graphical - printer either prints nothing or a couple of
reams of hex data.

4) I tried lprmon instead of lprportd and that prints ASCII & graphical data but the quality is
absolute crap.

5) Would I be better of trying a PS printer? Or, as I am inclined to do, forget the whole thing? :-)

TIA
