    Default SCO 5.0.7 & HP Network Print Services Manager

    I'm attempting to install a 'Fresh' install of SCO 5.0.7 onto a new
    system, and go to run "scoadmin / printers / HP Network Print Services
    Manager" and it comes up to the correct "Do you want to install or
    remove network printing (i/r/q)? [q]:", but when I go to "Install",
    the program exits and I get a "Error while executing: 'HP Network
    Print Services Manager' (exit code: 1) ".

    Anyone have an idea what might be causing this or a way to run this
    the "installer' manually so I can find the 'true' error, or ?.

    All of my printers are on Jetdirects, so I need to get this running.

    Thank You

    On Linux you don't need to user extra software.
    SCO 5.0.7 is VERY expensive <-> Linux and the spooler is very bad in
    the networking part. (cups)

    But, does he really need remote printing for the HP-Job - i think no !
    Isn't for HP 9100 ports a little tool like "netcat" delivered with SCO
    ?
    I would try to install a printer simply with the HP Printer Manager.

    /usr/lib/hpnp/hpnpcfg


    HP NETWORK PRINTER CONFIGURATION TASKS
    MAIN MENU

    1) Verify installation of software
    2) Configure a printer with BOOTP/TFTP
    3) Verify BOOTP/TFTP configuration
    4) Verify network printer connectivity
    5) Verify network printer operation
    6) Add printer to spooler
    7) Remove printer BOOTP/TFTP configuration
    8) Remove printer from spooler

    ?) Help q) Quit

    Then SCO should buy a licence to distribute netcat if their spool
    isn't a pence worth. :-))))
    But in our company the HP printer manager works fine.

    They wouldn't need a license.

    Sigh. Then all I can say is that you are unusual and lucky. The
    HP printer software on SCO is plagued with several problems,
    and most of us here eschew it instantly in favor of netcat.

    Look through the google archives. You'll see post after post
    complaining of various problems with hpnp. It's unnecessarily
    complex, and it causes problems. Netcat is simple, direct
    and it works.
