Samba printing to Faxworks PMfax from remote -- error

16/04/2010 - 11:46 von Herr Willms | Report spam
Since I moved from IBM's LAN-softwere to SAMBA, my PMfax (Faxworks by
Kellergroup, long defunct company) does not process files from other
stations in my LAN, which are running Windows.

The FxPrint Printer Driver opens a window saying (this is on a
system with German language interface):

Job-ID <unbekannt> für FxPrint
Error auto-starting fax program
'D:\COMMS\FAXWORKS\PMFAX.EXE' (x01A2)

Die Verarbeitung wird beendet
- off -

Translations:
unbekannt = unknown
für = for
"Die Verarbeitung wird beendet" = "Processing is terminated" (or
somesuch).

Another window with title "VX-REXX Console for Samba Print Command
for OS/2" opens with

cut --

Printparms='"smbprn.00000007.Hw94nl" "FxPrint" "Testseite" "0"
"43427"'
58
Verzeichnis: "C:\SPOOL\FxPrint"
Spoolfile: "smbprn.00000007.Hw94nl"
Smbprinter: "FxPrint"
;FxSave;FXPRINT.Fax
<-->FxSave
FxPrint;FxPrint;FXPRINT.Fax
FxPrint<-->FxPrint

and a smaller window with title "Samba Print Command for OS/2" and
the single text line 'Print "Testseite" (0,43427 bytes) to "FxPrint"'

The sections in the smb.conf regarding printing are

- cut

[FxPrint]
comment = FxPrint
path = C:/SPOOL/FxPrint
read only = No
create mask = 0700
guest ok = Yes
printable = Yes
printing = os2
print command = C:\APPS\SAMBA\smbprint.exe "%s" "%p" "%J" "%c" "%z"
lpq command = lpq.exe -s %i -p %p
lprm command = lprm.exe -s %i -p %p %j
printer name = FxPrint

[FxSave]
comment = FxSave
path = C:/SPOOL/FxSave
read only = No
create mask = 0700
guest ok = Yes
printable = Yes
printing = os2
print command = C:\APPS\SAMBA\smbprint.exe "%s" "%p" "%J" "%c" "%z"
lpq command = lpq.exe -s %i -p %p
lprm command = lprm.exe -s %i -p %p %j
printer name = FxSave

off -

I had changed the SPOOL files from the SAMBA Spool directory to the
one used when printing locally, but that did not change anything.

There is a "printcap" file next to the smb.conf, but I don't know
what should be in there.

Printing to the fax driver from OS/2 and WinOS2 applications works
without problems.

Could I possibly redirect the print to the LPT2 and LPT3 ports which
are used by WinO2 applications? A "COPY sometextfile.txt LPT2:" from
the commandline works fine.

What's up? Please help!

hope that somebody could please look into my problems and give me a
hint

Gewinnen und verlieren in einer Diskussion können sich
vernünftigerweise nur beziehen auf Gewinn an Erkenntnis und Verlust
von Vorurteilen. Wer meint, es ginge um Gewinnen von Plàtzen in der
Hackordnung und Niedermachen eines "Gegners", sollte sich begraben
lassen.
