Sco Unix printing : jobs hangs in queue - printing via lp versus hpnpf

Hi,

We have a Unix 3.2v5.0.5.
I installed a printer via scoadmin, HP network printer manager with network peripheral name (hostname and ipadres are in /etc/hosts).

This is the configuration file :

Code:
Code:
root@sco1 # cat configurationBanner: on:AlwaysContent types: simpleDevice: /dev/null
Interface: /usr/spool/lp/model/HPLaserJetPrinter 
type: unknown
Number of banners: 0
root@sco1 #

Printing worked fine from the unix via the lp-command.
But now I had to change the IP-adres from the printer. I did this in the /etc/hosts file and then restarted the printservices via lpshut and lpsched.

In scoadmin/Printers/HP network printer manager/ Test printer activity
There I print a textfile (
Code:
/usr/lib/hpnp/hpnpf -n -v -R -x pr50 textfile

This works perfect

But printing the same file with
Code:
lp -dpr50 textfile

doesn't work.
I see the job in the spooler, but there is no printing.

I do not understand this. The problem is now that the whole application doesn't print anymore. So it is quite problematic.

I didn't reboot the unix, but I retarted the spooler. But no luck.

Did I forgot something ?

Thanks;
