Hi Kris,

Turned on printer to make following tests

# dmesg
.....
ppbus0: <HEWLETT-PACKARD DESKJET 690C> MLC,PCL,PML
plip0: <PLIP network interface> on ppbus0
lpt0: <Printer> on ppbus0
lpt0: Interrupt-driven port
ppi0: <Parallel I/O> on ppbus0
......

ls -l /dev/lpt0
crw-------  1 root  wheel   16,   0 Mar  8 22:48 /dev/lpt0

It is there.


I skipped following steps

1)
# ./MAKEDEV port

and
2)
# lptcontrol -i -d /dev/lpt0
(to set interrupt-driven mode for lpt0)

and
3)
# lptcontrol -p -d /dev/lpt0
(to set polled-mode for lptN)


Jumped to;
# lptest > /dev/lpt0
only strange symbols printed and printing continued without stop until I 
removed the paper tray.  Communication between printer and port seemed 
working

Kindly advise how to fix the test printing error.

TIA

B.R.
Stephen
