Port 515 conflict with NetManage

I am using Chameleon NetManage and I want to use RPM because of the extended features offered. When I try starting RPM, an error message stating 'RPM has detected another program is using port 515...'. How can I eliminate this message?

Chameleon HostLink contains a very simple LPD package. It will pass raw data to the printer. Since you wish to use RPM for more complicated tasks or features, this LPD should be disabled. To disable it:

  1. Open the Windows "Control Panel". Double-click "Network".
  2. Locate the NetManage LPD service. Highlight it, then press "Properties".
  3. Select the setting to disable this service. RPM will be replacing it, along with adding features which are not available in the NetManage LPD.

Now, you should be able to start RPM without the error message. This message is there to warn users or administrators that there is a problem, rather than determining the problem later on. Note: In old versions of Chameleon, the LPD did not run as a service. To disable the LPD in old versions, simply close the application. You should also remove it from the "Startup" group if you will be using RPM.
