IP TelnetSym printing timeout?

» close window

The Question is:

I am running TCP/IP (UCX) V4.2 ECO 3 and am getting the following:
UCX$TELNETSYM - (PRINTER) open_scoket_ast invoked with bad IOSB 556:  device
 timeout.  I have the following Logicals set.
The printers affected Stall after one job prints and most often this happens
 after a reboot of the systems.

The Answer is :

  Contact the Compaq Customer Support Center directly.
  You will need to identify the specific printer(s) involved, as well
  as the following: the queue settings, the validity and error counts
  from the local network, the ability to ping and to telnet to the
  printer(s), as well as other related information.
  Please see topic 1020 for just some of what can be involved when
  connecting to printers via IP.  (This may be a TCP/IP Services
  problem, a host configuration problem, a printer configuration
  problem, a network routing configuration problem, a network
  cabling or hardware problem, a network traffic overload, or
  a printer problem.)
