Oracle Reports Developer - Version 6.0.8.0.8 and later
Generic Windows

Goal

Printing directly to TCP/IP printer over the network can fail with REP-713 REP-50157 errorcode 1848 : REP-713: Invalid printer name "printername" specified by parameter REP-50157: Error while sending file to printer . Exit with error code 1848.

If a TCP/IP printer should be used in DESNAME, then some more configuration steps need to be done.
