LPR printing to Freeflow Core Workflow

Jump to solution

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.

Thanks

-Andrew

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.

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.

Thanks

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 5363.200.0.0 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.

Edit - The Microsoft LPD service running on the Freeflow Server was interferring with the Freeflow Core one.

Problem solved.
