We a windows printer (this is not a network printer hence we cannot
assign and ip to this printer) connected to a windows xp machine running
IIS. We are using cups as our print server. Hence the printer is
configured as 

http://xp machine ip:80/printer/printer-share/.printer (thanks to kurt). 

Only windows clients will be using this printer. So in the clients this
printer is configured as 


The idea here is to use cups only for spooling and the client to do the
filtering. Hence in cups we have configured this as a raw queue, with
the drivers for this printer installed in the client computers.


Now when we print from the client, the first print is delivered
correctly. After which cups says

Printer State: stopped, accepting jobs.
"Unable to get job 8 attributes (client-error-not-possible)!" 

no further jobs to this queue are delivered to IIS.

only after clicking start printer, the next job is printed after which
the above mentioned error is repeated again.

Please help me out with this problem.

Thank you,
Mohammed Riyaz P.
