  • @#@#$@ 2k3/XP Printer Capture

    Ok, google is not helping me here, and I've seen this before, but I can't figure out the problem.

    We have a HP Color Laser Printer shared on a 2k3 server.
    A client machine (XP Pro) has this mapped.
    It also has a net use lptx \\server\printer mapped for an older program to run.

    We keep getting remote downlevel document in the print queue that does not print.
    Sits/sometimes loops.

    Now judging from google, this should only happen if there is a net use on the server
    which there is not.
    No we do not have the bugbear or any other virus.

    What could be the problem ?
    Help me before I go insane !

    Has this always been the case, or is this a new problem? Have you tried stopping and restarting the printer spooler service?

        Frodo, did you ever resolve this?

        I know there are some now "known issues" with the recent Update Rollup 1 package for Win2kSP4, and MS has acknowledged these, and just released v2 of the rollup.

        Perhaps something similar applies to your situation..?

          Oh yes, I did resolve it. Turned out it was an error on my part.
          We bought a host based printer by accident, so it didn't accept
          PCL input, which is what is coming from our old program.
