DMP (Shared) Printer configure in SAP

Hi Dear,

I have one DMP (Dot Matric Printer 9 pin EPSON 330+) and installed in desktop no 1. I have in installed this printer in desktip number 2. I want to take sap printout from desktop no 2 through this printer. If i define set as default in printer setting in desktop no 2 and use locl in SAP then printout comes. In case i use printer name (CHQIT) in sap then printout does't come.

My sap version is 4.0B with oracle, os is sun solaris 8.

What I have done:

1. Printer is installed in winxp desktop no 1 with original dirver.

2. This printer is shared with CHQIT name.

3.I have installed shared printer in desktop number 2

4. Two printer installed in desktop 2 computer one is network printer and another DMP printer.

5. I have configure in SAP spad with below setting:-

output device = CHQIT

short name = CHIT

device type = EPESCP9

Spool server= bdisappd_BDP_00

Destination host = CHQIT

Host printer =
INGRIT003\CHQIT

access method to host spool = S

The desktop no 1 have static IP Address

I have mentioned everywhere upper case without space in configuration of spad, printer name & printer share name also in uppercase.

If i select set as default dmp printer and use locl in sap then priting comes in the dmp ptinter but if i select CHQIT printer in sap then printing don't come on the printer.

Previously this printer was working properly with the same sanerio. I have delete this printer and reinstall again after that this problem comes with me.

I want to know should i left any configuration or somthing missing when i configure.

I know the configuration of network printer and installed so many times there are no problem comes till now. But this is not network printer.

If any one have some idea about this, pls reply with details.

I need this help on urgent basis.

Regards,

Anil

    Hi,

    One more thing, is the PC resolved by using the "INGRIT003" name. I had done similar configs but had used IP for the URL, e.g.
    192.168.1.10\chkprn

    Hi,

    Do one plain check. Try to do a "search for computer" and see if you can resolve to the URL you have specified in SAP. Also one more thing, see to it that the PC and PRINTER names are 8 chars and contain no spaces. Hope it helps!
