tcpdump output of print job (1.06 MB, application/octet-stream)

Description Simon Goodall 2008-01-20 21:05:17 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a HP photosmart 7960 connected via usb to an apple airport express. The
airport express advertises the printer over a jet direct port (9100).

When printing the test page it mostly prints out then stops. The printer still
says "printing". Cancelling the print tests and starting a new test page causes
the remaining section of the first job to start printing, followed by the second
job.
It appears as if the last part of the job is never sent or flushed from the
buffer until the next job starts.

The printer works fine when connected directly via usb.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2008-01-21 10:02:21 UTC
What does 'lpstat -s' say when the printer is connected via the airport express
print server?

I'd like to see the TCP/IP stream between the CUPS client and the print server
when a job is submitted.  You can do this by running this command:

tcpdump -s0 -U -w 9100.pcap port 9100

as root before sending the job, and pressing Control-C after the job has
finished printing as much as it's going to.  Attach the 9100.pcap file to this
bug report.  Thanks.

Created attachment 292406 [details]
tcpdump output of print job

lpstat -s shows the listed device uris with the relevant line being;

device for PhotoSmart_7960: socket://one.home:9100

where one.home is the hostname for my airport express.

See the attachment for the tcpdump output.
