I'm using a really strange print server, from win-star, model WS-NU78W44, trying to share a HP LaserJet M1120 MPF. When I tried to use the print server's installer, on windows, it worked well, but now when I send it to print it CRASHES before printing: from Google Chrome, from explorer, from Paint, everywhere I try to print.
So, I started reading about LPD/LPR or something like that as an alternative, and it didn't work as well after trying to add a local printer, selecting LPR port, adding an ip and not setting a queue name. Nothing prints. So I decided to use a mac machine.
To my surprise, adding this printer as lpd, not setting a queue name and installing it's proper printer drivers, it works. Why when trying to set this printer, as LPD/LPR on my windows, as local, without a queue name, and sending it to print, it doesn't work, but when I do it using the mac it does? What's the catch? Does OS X send a "default" queue name? How do I debug this?
PS: This printer model isn't listed as a compatible one in the manuals, but since it printed from the mac I believe it will be possible from windows.
