  1. Getting Lexmark T632 printers to work with HP3000

    HW=HP3000/918LX
    OS=MPE/iX 7.5pp1

    Printer = Lexmark T632 (TCP/IP port 9100)

    We are replacing all of our well worn HP LaserJets, of various marks and
    models, with three Lexmark T632s. I have got the test printer working
    with Linux and with MS-Windows but I am having a problem with getting the
    HP3000 to print to it.

    My NPCONFIG looks like this

    ....
    global (
    message_interval = 0
    pjl_supported = FALSE
    jam_recovery = FALSE
    )
    ....
    #Hamilton Lexmark T632 Direct Network Connection (Forwarding)
    4174 (network_address = 192.168.71.50
    TCP_port_number = 9100
    setup_file=LJ2PORT.HPENV.SYSLOCAL
    )
    #EOF

    This printer is supposed to support PCL level 6 but I do not know whether
    I require a special environment file for it or if I have to other
    alterations in places of which I am not yet aware.

    Can anybody help me with this. I tried printing a test file through
    Fantasia and the spool file just shows ready.

    DEV/CL DFID JOBNUM FNAME STATE FRM SPACE RANK PRI #C
    4174 #O73907 #S2091 FANTQDEV READY 1328 1 8 1

    I stopped and restarted the spooler for this device and this is what I see:

    Adding snmp_enabled = FALSE to the existing NPCONFIG entry has enabled
    the printer from the HP3000.

    Thank you very, very much.

    Sincerely,
