    I am attempting to move picasso (lgp3) from bliss to cheer.
    I changed the printer host entry, spooled printer
    entries in both hosts, removed printer-queue-control,
    printer-control, and hardcopy entries from bliss and
    added them to cheer. Also added the print spooler entries
    to cheer, etc. I then attached the SAME printer cable that
    had been attached to bliss to the serial port on cheer
    (bliss is a 3650, cheer an xl1200). WHen I fire everything
    up (reboot to be sure that I am seeing the new entried, load
    the print system,...) 		 , cheer complains that picasso  			 		
    doesn't seem to be responding.
    If I disconnect the cable, the complaint changes to not
    attached. If I reset all the changes, and rewire to bliss,
    I can print.

    SO --- what gives? Any suggestions for the next step in
    tracking this down? Could the serial port on the xl1200
    be flaky (never had occasion to use it before, so I don't
    know if it works). Seems strange that the host can tell that
    the printer is there but not responding vs. not there at all
    when the cable is removed.

    All help is welcomed.

We have also had trouble when moving a printer from a 3650 to an XL1200.
In our case, it happened to be a color postscript printer (Seiko
Colorpoint).  At one point, when connected to the 3650, it worked fine,
then when the same printer was connected to an XL1200, it failed to
