Printing output file.
Request ID : 30498579
Number of copies : 1
Printer : PRODPRN
APP-FND-00500: AFPPRN received a return code of failure from routine FDUPRN. Program exited with status 1
Cause: AFPPRN received a return code of failure from the OSD routine FDUPRN. Program exited with status 1.
Action: Review your concurrent request log file for more detailed information.
After that I check the printers.conf file in linux print server to find out root cause. In /etc/cups/printers.conf AuthInfoRequired pointing negotiate.
cat printers.conf|grep AuthInfoRequired
We need to remove AuthInfoRequired negotiate from /etc/cups/printers.conf and stop and start or simply restart cups service as below
# service cups restart
Stopping cups: [ OK ]
Starting cups: [ OK ]
Verify whether cups running.
# service cups status
cupsd (pid 11320) is running…
Again check it in printers.conf file, If it will show in /etc/cups/printers.conf remove them accordingly .
# cat printers.conf|grep negociate

Nice blog. Thanks for sharing that look awesome.
If you need to add Epson xp 235 wifi setup to a wireless network then in that case on the printer machine press the home button further press the arrow on the printer then as you see the wi- fi set up option press the OK button. If in case you are still in need of more information or help then ask for it from the experts.
Really it is very great information that you have shared and thanks for sharing the information with us.
