I have just set up a shared generic line printer on one of our 2003 servers, and when I print a test page everything prints OK. However, when I map it as a network printer on another machine the print job is sent to the queue but stays there and nothing is printed. In the application log on the print server the following error is displayed:
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: LPR Print Monitor
Event Category: None
Event ID: 2004
Printer bdwageslp on host 10.20.5.10 is rejecting our request. Will retry until it accepts the request or the job is cancelled by the user.
I end up having to cancel the job. I've seen lots of support articles for this problem on NT4 Terminal server but not on 2000 or 2003.
Any help would be appreciated.
