Subject: [HPADM] Can't print to network printer
I can't print to a network spooled printer.
I suspect bastille even after doing a "bastille -r", no luck. I can print
from another identical system that has yet to have bastille config'ed on

System name - DB2, HP-UX 11.23
Queue name - sc5si
To add the printer I...
SAM/Printers and Plotters/LP SPooler/Printer and Plotters/Actions/Add
Network-Based Printer/Plotter which then fired up JetDirect..
JetDirect Printer Installer for UNIX vE.10.34 /opt/hpnpl/bin/hppi

2) Status Log [/opt/hpnpl/tmp/sc5si.log]
3) Network Address [192.x.x.x]

2) True End-of-Job [ON]

Modelscript used for this queue is net_lj5x
I can print a test page via the JetDirect Diagnostics that is running on

% grep printer /etc/inetd.conf
printer stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/rlpdaemon rlpdaemon -i
% grep 515 /etc/services
printer 515/tcp spooler # remote print spooling
The host is in the /etc/hosts file even though it really doesn't have to
be since I used the ip address during the jetadmin setup.
scheduler is running
What else is there to check? Is it possible to setup some debugging? Any
one have any ideas?
