Well, the SW vendor told me to get 'print servers' for the label
printers and my problems would go away. Yeah right. But I did and sure
enough, the disappearing printer issue went away, but now it takes an
average of 30 seconds for a label to print, where it used to be about 2
seconds. I call the vendor and he said, Oh, that is not what I meant, I
meant to put PCs in the factories and use them as print servers', I told
him we got rid of the PCs and use terminals, he said "Oh, my bad". So,
what can anyone suggest for using a Zebra TLP-2844 label printer with a
Wyse 3150SE terminal in a MSTSC environment server being Windows 2003
server standard fully patched? I am thinking it is not a Starship issue
but a network printer issue.

Subject: [THIN] printing issues

 

Greetings all.

I am having an odd issue that is driving me bonkers.

I have our shipping and samples departments using a Win 2k3 terminal
server, main application is Starship, no problem, well, we decided to
upgrade the server, so we had another terminal server, better CPU, more
RAM... and it was not being used, so I moved user profiles to it, and
all the Starship data files, everything is setup correctly as far as I
can tell, but, no one can print.

The terminals are Wyse 3150SE with a Zebra label printer directly
attached. They can print to other network attached laser printers, just
not the label printer. This includes, from the printers properties
screen, from notepad or WordPad, from Starship, logged in as the user or
even Administrator, nothing works. But if I log out of the new server
and back into the old one, everything works fine.

Anyone have any idea as to where to look?

 

Thank You
