Based on the requirements i have defined this O/p devices pointing to same printer. We are using ACCESS METHOD "C", But when the user tries to print he recieves an message as *Processing* in sp01( spool request) and if i try to check the O/p request i gives an error saying

WAITING IN HOST SPOOLER (x) where x is a numeric and it gets incremented every time we test to print.

Please advice on what needs to be checked here to fix the issue.
