We have a Sharp AR-651 photocopier which we want to make available via
iPrint on a NW 6.5 environment.

If I install it via iPrint the installation on the workstation seems to be
performed ok, it finishes w/o errors. When I print to it from a Word
document I don't get an error message, but neither does it print out
anything. When I print to it from Notepad I get the message "invalid
handle". When I right click on the printer in "Settings - Printers and
Faxes" I get the message
"The Sharp AR-651/850PCL6UC printer driver is not installed on this
computer...do you want to install the driver now? yes/no" If I click yes
and go through the procedure to install it the result is still the same.

Also interesting in this context: when I create a driver profile for this
printer in iManager the additional options in option settings are grayed
out, I can not choose any.

If I install the printer as a local printer via TCP/IP port on a
workstation it works fine, I can then also choose the additional options of
the printer.

Any ideas?
