Message: The Line Printer Daemon (LPD) service received commands in an invalid format from %1 and refused the print job. This can occur if the Line Printer Remote (LPR) client is incompatible with the Windows LPD service and Request for Comments (RFC) 1179. Try printing using a different LPR client.


Use a different LPR client

The Line Printer Remote (LPR) client is not compatible with the Windows Line Printer Daemon (LPD) service. Try printing using a different LPR client, or use a Windows printing client to print to the Windows print server.
