FOG 1.2.0 : Printer Management : inf file field ?



  • Hey,

    I’m trying to add a network printer (HP LaserJet P2015dn) for a win7 (x32) client on my FOG 1.2 server.
    But, i can’t see the inf field … (like this http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Managing_FOG#Adding_New_Printers).

    After some research, the 0.32 fog version has this field but not the 1.x version of FOG.

    I add the printer with these informations :
    [QUOTE]Printer Alias : HP LaserJet P2015 PCL6

    Printer Port IP_xx.yy.zz.xx

    Printer Model : HP LaserJet P2015 PCL6

    Printer IP : 1x.xx.xx.xx

    [/QUOTE]

    In the fog log client, i can see :

    I can’t see any printer on the client (same resultat with a reboot of client)

    I tried another way :

    • install the printer as a local printer on the windows 7 client

    • delete the printer (but keep drivers)

    • reboot

    • same problem ; same fog log, no printer on the windows 7 client.

    What’s wrong ?


  • Senior Developer

    Because it has no idea where to look for the file?



  • I found the solution … but it’s strange.
    Good parameters into the printer edit section :

    Printer Alias : HP LaserJet P2015 PCL6
    Printer Port IP_xx.yy.zz.xx
    Printer Model : HP LaserJet P2015 PCL6
    Printer Type : C:\Windows\inf\ntprint.inf
    Printer IP : 1x.xx.xx.xx
    

    I don’t understand why i need to put the inf path into the Printer Type field but, with this parameter, it’s seem to work …



  • No idea ?
