Officejet G85 installed on NT server


I have installed a Officejet G85 on LPT1: on a MS Small Business Server 4.5. It works fine here.
I have just upgraded all the workstations from W98 to W3K.
I can connect to the G85 from the workstation, but nothing comes out on the printer.
I get a "finish printing" notification from the serverspooler, but the printerjob is hangeing in the que, and the size of the job is 0 byte.

I have another printer attached to the server, which works fine from all workstation, so I think it must be a driverproblem.
I have used the latest G85 NT driver on the server??

How can i solve this problem??

Are you using a JetDirect box for your network connection? The G-Series is not supported over a client server. Here is
the documentation....

If you want to continue to use the client server, you can install an alternative print-only driver. The DeskJet 970 is compatible. Here's another document on that:

Hope this helps!
