Printing

UNIX

If printing through a UNIX server fails, make sure that the Standard Port Monitor (SPM) or Lprmon is installed. If it is not installed, you might not be able to produce print information that is usable by the server. For more information about installing SPM, see New Ways to Send Print Jobs earlier in this chapter. For more information about working with UNIX, see Operating System Exceptions earlier in this chapter or Interoperability with UNIX in this book.

NetWare

If printing through a NetWare server fails, make sure that you have a client installed on your computer such as Microsoft Client Service for NetWare or Novells client, Novell Client 32. Such clients allow your computer to send print jobs to the NetWare server, which the server then relays to the printer. If this is not installed, you might not be able to produce print information that is usable by the server. For more information, see Operating System Exceptions earlier in this chapter or Interoperability with NetWare in this book.

IBM

If printing through an IBM server fails, make sure that you have connected to the LPT port that corresponds to the printer to which you are sending the job. For more information about SPM, see New Ways to Send Print Jobs earlier in this chapter. If your clients need to communicate with a mainframe computer, ensure that 3270 emulation software is installed. If your clients need to communicate with an AS/400, ensure that 5250 emulation software is installed.

For more information about working with IBM servers, see Operating System Exceptions earlier in this chapter or Interoperability with IBM Host Systems in this book or for more information about working with IBM, see Interoperability with IBM Host Systems in this book.

Macintosh

If printing to a printer using the AppleTalk protocol fails, make sure that Services for Macintosh and the AppleTalk Port Monitor, Sfmmon, are installed on your computer.

For more information about working with Macintosh printers, see Operating System Exceptions earlier in this chapter.
