LPR Port Configuration Warning Error

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Hello everybody!

The LPD Server did not respond as expected to a test command


The error message that appears to me is:

LPR Port Configuration Warning

The LPD Server did not respond as expected to a test command. 

Any of the following can cause this error:

The entry for IP Address or Queue Name is incorrect.

The TCP/IP print device (LPD server) does not support the

test command.

The specified TCP/IP print device is not available.

If the information typed in the previous screen is correct, you can

ignore this message. Click OK to continue, or click Cancel to return to 

the previous screen and verify settings.

                                                                      OK              Cancel

I have a problem related to printers and I am interested to know its solution. I wanted to set up at test environment to programmatically set up the ports of LPR, to a queue on a Unix system for Windows (however I use Ubuntu for testing in a virtual environment). 

I want to send the print from Windows to Ipd:\192.168..xqueuename that is configured for me in CUPS on an Ubuntu machine that is set up to go back to the Windows-system that has a (Samsung) printer connected to USB, but shared on the environment (a different queue than that one initially started the request). 

I am not allowed to use Samba, or any other printing protocol from Windows than LPR/LPD through destination port 515.

Any help?

This problem can be solved if you have done these things:

  • First of all you have to install the LPR.
  • For this you may have open network neighborhood and then click on properties.
  • After this click on the services tab and the click on add button.
  • Then click on the Microsoft TCP/IP and then click on ok button.
  • The computer will ask to insert the CD.
  • Then close the Windows and restart your computer.

So when you restart your computer the problem will not further irritate you.

Thank you.

Hi there,

Before starting, check to make sure you have LPR printing installed.
To install LPR printing, right click on network neighborhood and click on properties and on the services tab click on Add.
Select The MS TCP/IP printing option and ok and when it asks you to insert the Windows CD, insert and the progress will start. After it is finished click on close and restart the PC when prompted and after successful boot, remove the windows CD.
LPR printing should be working as it should.
