I have set up a eStudio 350 in NDPS. I have tried using lpr names of raw and direct without success. There are no errors in NDPS and it thinks it has printed properly. The printer never seems to have received anything. I am running on a netware 6.5 SP 5 server.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Description LPR (line printer remote) is a platform independent printing protocol that is associate with TCP/IP. It works by using LPR client software that communicates to a server running LPR services.
In terms of PSU, LPR printing will become the basis for all network printing while Novell print queues are phased out. Therefore, all Macintosh, Windows, and Unix computers will be configured to print through LPR.
· The name of LPR print queue. This can be found by searching the LPR printer database.
· LaserWriter print drivers version 8.5.1 or newer
· The Macintosh must have a working TCP/IP networking configuration. (If the Mac can browse the web then it's working.)
· a server running LPR services or a printer that supports LPR printing. Most HP LaserJet printers support LPR. However, only the following LaserWriters support LPR printing:
1.Open up the Applications folder from the OS X menu. 2.Open up the Utilities folder 3.Now open up the Print Center 4.If you have no printers installed you will see the following screen. Click on Add. 5.On the following screen, select LPR printing. 6.Now enter printhost.oit.pdx.edu for the LPR Printer's address. 7.Uncheck Use Default Queue on Server option and enter the queue name of the printer. 8.Select the printer model. 9.The completed settings should be similar to the following: (LPR Printer’s address is the ip of our PRINTSERVER) 10.Click on Add 11.Your printer has successfully been installed. Test the printer by printing something to it.
I was having the same problem when I added a Windows Vista PC to my home network. My older XP systems workd fine, but the Vista system would keep printing. The following fix worked forme in vista, may work in XP also.
1. First, be sure you have the latest firmware in your DPR1260. Version 1.24 is what I am using.
2. From the printer window (or via controlm panel) select your printer, then select Properties (either right click, or from the menu via File-Properties)
3. In the Properties Window, select the Ports tab. You should see your printer highlighted and checked, under the port heading next to thcheck box you'll see IP_192.168.x.x, under descriptio Standard TCP/IP Port, and undr Printer, the name of your printer.
4. Click the "Configure Port" button, be sure "LPR" is selected, not "RAW". Under LPR Settings, check that the "Queue Name" matches that in our DPR1260 status screen, and be sure SNMP Status Enabled is not checked.
The problem on my Vista machine went away when I changed from "RAW" to "LPR" settings.
Before I put this solution in (manually adding the printer step-by-step), I could print a test page just fine, but not anything from Office.
Make sure to follow each step in order. I printed off the test page and held it up to the old one and the only thing I saw different was a field named "Shared". It was blank but who knows. I'm just happy the darn thing is working!
