ProcedureHow to Send Print Requests to a Remote Printer When Requests Are Backed Up in the Local Queue

  1. On the print client, stop further queuing of print requests to the print server.

    # reject printer-name 
  2. On the print client, send an “are you there?” request to the print server.

    print-client# ping print-server
    print-server is alive

    If you receive the message print-server not available, you might have a network problem.

  3. After you fix the above problem, allow new print requests to be queued.

    # accept printer-name 
  4. If necessary, re-enable the printer.

    # enable printer-name
