Print Queue Problems

Hi All

Does anyone know what is meant by PRINTER STATUS CONNECT concerning print queues?

At work we run a Perle/Connectix JetStream 8500 (RJ45 Model) to connect our dot matrix printers and often we get the Connect Status.

Nobody I speak to knows what the status means. When the printer queues have this status nothing can print. After an extended period of time the status changes back to READY and everything is fine once more.

The problem is happening more and more frequently.

Please help as its causing me headaches

lpmove(1M)						  System Administration Commands						lpmove(1M)

NAME
lpmove - move print requests SYNOPSIS
lpmove [request-ID] destination lpmove destination1 destination2 DESCRIPTION
The lpmove command moves print requests queued by lp(1) or lpr(1B) between destinations. The first form of lpmove moves specific print requests (request-ID) to a specific destination. The second form of the lpmove command moves all print requests from one destination (destination1) to another (destination2). This form of lpmove also rejects new print requests for destination1. lpmove moves individual requests or entire queues only between local printers or between remote printers, not between a local and a remote printer. You can move only requests that were not previously transferred to the server. When moving requests, lpmove does not check the acceptance status of the destination to which the print requests are being moved (see accept(1M)). lpmove does not move requests that have options (for example, content type or requiring a special form) that cannot be handled by the new destination. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: request-ID The specific print request to be moved. Specify request-ID as the identifier associated with a print request as reported by lpstat. See lpstat(1). destination The name of the printer or class of printers (see lpadmin(1M)) to which lpmove moves a specified print request. Specify destination using atomic, POSIX-style (server:destination) syntax. destination1 The name of the destination from which lpmove moves all print requests. Specify destination using atomic, POSIX-style (server:destination) syntax. destination2 The name of the destination to which lpmove moves all print requests. Specify destination using atomic, POSIX-style (server:destination) syntax. See printers.conf(4) for information regarding the naming conventions for atomic names and standards(5) for information regarding POSIX. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. non-zero An error occurred. FILES
/var/spool/print/* LP print queue. ATTRIBUTES
