Try adding an rp entry (remote printer, or print queue name): lp:\ :sh:\ :rm=192.168.1.101:rp=raw:\ :sd=/var/spool/output/lpd:lf=/var/log/lpd-errs: That may get the 5si/mx to see it; I'm not sure about the behavior when no print queue name is specified. > Is there any other option I need for this printer, such as a special escape > sequence for it to interpret Postscript? I think the PJL sequence is something like escape %12345!, but you should first check the printer menus to see if it's set to auto-detect the print job type or just interpret them all as PCL. -Warren Block * Rapid City, South Dakota USA _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
