The thing to check then would be if it behaves differently in different
applications pointing to the same printer, and, if it behaves different if
you go ahead and update the driver, for instance, on only one of the
workstations.

Also, is there a possibility that it is a connectivity issue? Also, what
indicated that it was a virtual channel problem?

Yes, we moved from NT4 to w2k.   We made the W2K upgrade specifically to
be able to run SD FXP.  The fool spiles are set correctly as confirmed
by a Tricerat support rep who connected to my server.

Did you move from NT 4 to WIN2K? What was the reason for the upgrade?
Did you remove 1.6 first? Did you set the spool file rights?

Subject: [THIN] Screwdrivers FXP Issues



I have been a proponent of screwdrivers for awhile now on the list. Well
this week, I finally ran into some problems with it.  I did a 1.6 to FXP
upgrade and ran into serious problems.  I was wondering if other
screwdriver's users had any advice.

We print seriously complex documents for a mortgage application.  The
documents are multi-page and just about every combination of Letter,
Legal, Landscape, and Portrait you can think of.  SD 1.6 has worked well
from an admin perspective (very stable), but the users hated specifying
print orientation in the client.

Documents are primarly printed from a MS Access XP application.

The FXP upgrade caused serious flaky issues with the ICA client.  Server
side things were fine, but the ICA client was dropping out on client
workstations because of ICA Virtual channel issues.

Server side everything chugged along, but the documents never printed
after killing the ICA client.

Tricerat has reccomened upgrading printer drivers across the board
(essentially, verifying the driver on every workstation), which is what
we purchased SD to get away from originally.

Has anyone else had these issues?  Where driver updates the only way to
solve the problem?

Thanks,
