I am able to print fine to the printer if it's connected directly to the
computer. However, if I go through the apsfilter setup and try to use the IP
address ( and 'raw' as the printer name, the printer doesn't even
seem to register that it recieved any data. If I don't enter any name for
the printer name, and just use the IP address as the computer name, I still
get nothing.


Here is one of my printcap entries for a laserjet. It works great. Maybe if you compare them you will find the problem.

#    :rp=\
# APS1_END - don't delete this

A regular line printer that I use to print checks from another unix box is:

cheques|Impresora para cheques:\
 :if=/usr/local/libexec/ \

I also have a line printer for accounting that has a wide carrage and it is.

lp|local line printer:\
# :rm=

All my windows machines can print to all as can the unix boxes. I'm using three different brands of print servers, BTW.

I hope this helps,
