Since these are network printers it seems the problem is probably
associated with network connectivity. Can you telnet to the printer at
port 631? I assume you set up the printing on the two printers
separately or is a print server involved? Trying to delete the printer
from the F13 machine and reconfiguring it would be worth trying. Is
other printing from the F13 machine proceeding normally or is it also
