Type in the IP of the printer and then type in the name of the workflow in the "Name of printer or print queue" field. I chose the XeroxPS ClassDriver v1.1 to test with locally on my laptop and that worked. This morning I changed the driver to the newest GPD PS v5.759.5.0 and that also worked from Word and PDF. I've also had this setup on a windows print server using driver 53188.8.131.52 but it will fail when doing File/Print from a Word doc. If I send a PDF through it, it is successful. I haven't had time today to ask for the v5.759.5.0 to be installed on the print server to see if that works better but that will be my next step as I need Word files to work when being submitted via Windows Print driver to Core. I'm using Core 6.0.3.
Thanks for the reply David
I'm inferring that I cannot setup a Windows printer using an LPR port with a print driver and print to Freeflow core using a File->Print command from an application? See video below of add LPR printer dialog.
I'm limited to a command line/batch file/script and files that are either PDF or Office (Word/Excel) that Freeflow can can convert.
One can submit jobs to FFCore Workflows using lpr. An example is:
lpr -S localhost -P test2 "C:\testWorkflow.pdf"
whre test2 is a Workflow name.
Is it possible to setup a Windows 10 LPR printer and have it print to Freeflow Core?
What driver should be used?
Is there anything that needs to be setup on the Freeflow Server? I have installed the LPR service / IIS and checked that incomming connections are allowed on Port 515.
Running Core 6.1.2 on Windows Server 2016.
