    printer not bound

    Hi!

    We have NW 5.1 SP7, NDPS. When loading ndpsm, the server shows followin
    error:

    What should I write to the hosts file? Printer name? Server name? Or what?

    Thanks in advance

    Well, that depends on how you defined your printers.
    I suggest you post your PADBTXT.CSV file (found in the NDPS\xxxxxxxx.PSM
    directory of your server). This will show the exact definitions you used
    to create your printers.

    Cannot find such file in directory V:\NDPS\428B0A17.PSM. How else can I
    describe "my definitions" to printers? I created the printer with
    nwadm32, and in NDS that printer object hp_lj_1320 (+ JetDirect box)
    shows (in NDPS Printer Advanced Features)
    Printer State: Gateway Not Bound to Printer Agent
    Previous Printer State: Idle
    Port Handler Executable and Parameters: PH PORT=LPR
    HOSTADDRESS=10.11.2.10 PRINTERNAME=RAW (at first I tried default
    PASSTHROUGH)
    PDS Executable and Parameters: PDS
    Printer State Severity: 2
    Printer Enabled: 1

    What to do? I think there's no panic, because the users can print direct
    to IP-port.

    You are using the old obselete PH.NLM gateway. You should use PACVRT.EXE
    to convert your NDSP configuration to using the new NDPSGW.NLM gateway:
