I'm having a problem with intermittently dropped iprint jobs when they
come from a Solaris 9 host over lpr/lpd. The funny thing is this
worked flawlessly in Solaris 8 on the same host. What happens is that
in a run of 100 or so jobs, 10-20 will be missing, spread randomly
throughout the run. I've done packet captures on both the Sun box and
the NetWare box and the jobs that are missing were in both traces,
meaning the job got all the way to the server.

Is there a way to check if there are missing bytes at the end of the
job that would cause either NDPSM or NDPSGW to discard the job? And is
there a way to log every job to a given printer so I can see if it's
being dropped in the server or if it doesn't come out of the printer
for some reason?

Thanks in advance for any help!
