Hello Managers

I'm really impressed with this group. I received a response and solved
my problem ... all before lunch. All thanks to Roberto Dominijann
( Robert had the same problem a year ago
and forwarded me his summary.

PROBLEM: On a SPARC 2 and SPARCprinter running SunOS 4.1.3 and
           NeWSprint 2.1 each successful print job is followed by a
           page complaining of a /rangecheck error.
           (Original post is reproduced below.)

SOLUTION: (Quoted from Scott Kamin's reply.)
           This error is seen when printer accounting is enabled and
           the page count for a printer reaches 10000.
           Simply copy /dev/null to the .pgcnt file in
           to reset the page counters.

Thank you again

Victor Dinh
