My mainframe is trying to send a print job to the PDF print server (Windows machine) but getting ‘Connection Refused’. My PDF creator has a printer setup called MAIN and is shared as \\\MAIN.

I tried to print a test file from a Windows 7 client to the PDF print server using this command.
lpr -S -P -x testfile.txt

It received this:
Error: print server unreachable or specified printer does not exist.

I noticed that the PDF Creator has RED status and Printer Stop F2 is checked. I tried unchecking it, it doesn’t respond. Not sure what could be wrong here.

Please help.


did you install in server mode?
