The Line Printer Daemon (LPD) and Line Printer Remote (LPR) protocols provide printer spooling and network print server functionality for UNIX-based systems, such as HP-UX, Linux, and Macintosh.

IMPORTANT: Solution steps will vary depending on the software version of the machine. The software version of the machine can be found on the Configuration Report. See the Related Content for information on how to print a Configuration Report.

To Enable or Disable the LPR / LPD Protocol Using CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS) for Machines With Software Version 061.xxx:

  1. Access the machine's web interface (CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS)). If necessary, see the Related Content for additional information.
  2. Click on [Properties] at the top of the page.
  3. Enter the CWIS login name in the User ID field, and the password in the Password field.

    NOTE: The default login name is "admin", and the default password is "1111".

  4. Click on the [Login] button. The Configuration Overview page will be displayed.
  5. Click on [Connectivity] in the Properties section on the left side of the page to expand the list of options.
  6. Click on [Protocols] to expand the list.
  7. Click on [LPR / LPD].
  8. Within the General section, insert a check mark in the [Enabled] check box to enable the protocol. Remove the check mark to disable the protocol.
  9. If the protocol was enabled, make sure the port number entered in the Port Number field is 515.
  10. Click on the [Apply] button.

    A pop-up window stating, "Properties have been successfully modified." will be displayed. Click on the [OK] button.

  11. Click on the [Logout] link in the upper, right corner of the page. A Logout window will be displayed.
  12. Click on the [Logout] button.
  13. Close the browser window.

To Enable or Disable the LPR / LPD Protocol Using CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS) for Machines With Software Version 071.xxx or higher:

  1. Access the machine's web interface (CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS)). If necessary, see the Related Content for additional information.
  2. Click on [Properties] at the top of the page.
  3. Click on [Connectivity] on the left side of the page.
  4. Click on [Setup].
  5. Under Protocol, next to LPR/LPD, click on [Edit].
  6. Under Protocol, select [Enabled].
  7. Under Port Number, enter a value.
  8. Under PDL Switching, to allow multiple printer languages in a single job, select [Enabled]. This option allows the printer to process a single print job that contains two or more printer languages. An example is a PostScript print job with a PCL header.
  9. Under PDL banner page attributes to override LPR control file attributes for job name and owner, select [Enabled]. This feature allows you to replace the standard information displayed on a banner page with the user name and job name from the print job.
  10. Under Place temporary hold on which jobs, select one of the following options:
    • None (Use printer's default banner sheet job name if data file 1st) does not wait to receive the job control information. This selection can cause banner page information to print incorrectly.
    • Only those with data file received 1st holds the job when the data file for the job is received first. This option ensures that the printer waits to receive the control file information to print banner page details correctly.
    • All (consistent with older implementations) puts all jobs on hold. The job prints when the printer receives all job data. This setting can cause jobs to print slowly but results in accurate banner page information.
  11. Click on [Save].
