Printer Setup

Hi,

I have set up an HP printer, model 2300, on an Integrity server sunning on HP-Ux B.11.31 using the Jetdirect Printer Installer For Unix, version E.10.34.

This particular printer is printing the same job multiple times and I cannot figur out why that is.

Is ther perhaps a flag in the /etc/lp/interface/printer.name script which needs to be set so that it can default to 1 copy?

Regards,
Koketso

Might be nothing to do with the Unix driver configuration.

First thing is to check how the HP2300 is configured:

On the HP2300 go to menu tree:

Code:
configure device > printing > copies

What is that set to?

I've known it default to 32,000 copies!!!!
