Installation of SAPsprint on Windows 2008 x64bit SP2

OK, installed the latest xSPrint730_5-20009690 file to our Windows 2008 SP2 x64 server to replace our old Win 2003 SP2 x32 server.  Seemed to install OK, but our HOST system does not see it.  I get the following error message "Unable to reach the remote host spool system".  I've tried installing Windows built-in LPD service and it seems to work fine, so should I even bother?  Are there any known issues?  SAPsprint worked fine on my Win2k3 server, what gives?

    Dear Andrew,

    Does HOST system stand for SAP system?

    Maybe there is a Port-Issue. Did you try to reconfigure ports for SAPSprint and in SPAD?

    Or is the new windows server not at all reachable from your SAP system?

    Kind Regards,
    Lukas

    I can also confirm that SAPSprint runs fine on Windows 2008 R2.  Granted I am using 7200.3.7.14 (according to sapsprint.dbg).

    Did printers exist before the installation of SAPSprint? I have noticed that adding new printers without restarting SAPSprint can some times be an issue.

    Firewall settings?

    Any useful information in the SAPSprint logging?

    I would also think the only down side to not using SAPSprint if you have LPD working with Windows is the various options provided by SAPSprint...
