    Could not connect printer to LPR Port

    Hi guys,

    I am trying to setup a D-Link Print Server (DP301U) with an Oki 3200 laser printer.

    Everything seems to be fine, but when I try and print a test page I get the message:

    Could not connect printer to LPR Port
    I set the printer up on another computer and I also kept getting this error, but it suddenly started working.

    On the PC I am trying to setup at the moment I have checked that the printer driver settings (port name, IP, Protocol etc are all the same as the PC it works on and I keep getting that LPR port message?

    Some Info:

    Port Name: PS-B4B8F4
    Printer IP: 172.30.***.220
    Protocol: LPR (tried Raw and same thing)
    LPR Settings - Queue Name: PS-B4B8F4
    LPR Byte Counting Enabled

    I have tried an old Epson 900 printer using the print server and that works great.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I should think there is a status monitor in the drivers, is there a network version of them without it?

    The Dlink Web Interface says the printer is online and connected.

    The frustrating thing is that I know this works because I have setup another PC (a laptop) to print to the printer using (what seems) the exact same printer driver settings.

    I had a similar problen once with HP printers (cheapo laser 1020 range).

    Found this that may help in you case though.

    It's in Google English but you can get the idea.

    HBJB, your link to the spanish post regarding getting the OKI C3200 to work with the D-Link DP-301U turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks for your pointer.
