proper queue name for a D136?

I have a very specific reason for needing to print from a Windows workstation to a D136 copier via the LPD protocol.  When I send a test print using either 'lp; or 'PASSTHRU' the job doesn't print.  What is the correct queue name to inpout on the Windows machine for it to print?  Thank you!

Re: proper queue name for a D136?

D136 changes queues depending on print controller.

 

The built in is just lp (LP but lower case) assuming you have it turned on, if you don't, it can be done remote via CWIS  >Properties > Connectivity > Port Settings (excuse the screenshot, different printer, same setup though)

The Fiery is print or hold depending on what you want it to do (case sensitive)

 

The Freeflow depends on what you called them, as well as what the host name is when using the defaults. Open the Freeflow webpage (Put the IP of it in the web browser address bar). Click Job Submission (Screenshot is the same as your but on a color device in my case)

And all the queue names will be in the dropdown box (Case sensitive)

Thanks Joe!  Thsi is actually a client's printer, so I don't have direct access to it.  He checked the first screen below and LPD is checked.  Not sure what you mean by Fiery and Freeflow?  Should I be able to just get away with using the queuename lp?

Yes you should. But check to be sure, if you can LPR a job, you are on his LAN, just put the IP you are printing to in the address bar of whatever web browser you use on the PC submitting the job. That will verify if it is a Fiery/Freeflow or internal controller.

 

Fiery and Freeflow are computers that are usually added to this device to get faster prints and better job management. They handle the jobs very differently.

 

And you can simply Telnet to the IP in question via telnet 192.168.1.1 515 (replace the IP with his) and that will tell you if there is a block on LPD for sure.
