Error message: "Failed to pass job: Cannot assign requested address"

Authors list

After importing a configuration created in an older version of Lasernet to Lasernet 9, an error log can occur when a job is exchanged between two services/servers.

Error: Failed to pass job: Cannot assign requested address

This happens within the configuration, which have two modules connected that appear on different servers/instances in the configuration. Lasernet 9, unfortunately, cannot auto-convert these settings.

This error can also be caused by backslashes in printer profile names.


The server name and port number are no longer supported as a part of the module path and now require the instance name only.

In previous versions like Lasernet 7 or 8, the destination syntax was: servername:portnumber/modulename

After migration to Lasernet 9, the syntax for a destination must be changed to: instance:modulename

The syntax for module destinations can be present in Modules, Forms and Scripts
