Remote host...(54) druthers
I have been running into the same "Control File (54)" issue that you have been. I have attempted the HP Jetdirect approach, but that did not work.
My situation: I have a Mac Lab of 64 Mac G4-400 running OS X 10.3.5. I am using Xerox's print management solution named Pharos (although we have not upgraded to the 6.x version). Out of the 64 computers only 4 or 5 of them have had this issue. They are all set up identically (Carbon Copy Cloner and NetRestore), so I am at a loss as to why just those few do not work.
Any solution, or ideas of avenues to take would be greatly appreciated.
