1. Trouble printing to Okidata ML 321 with Hawking 7117P Printer Server in AIX 4

I have a OkiData Microline 321 9 pin printer, with an attached Hawking
7117P Printer server. I set up the print queue in smit and tried to
print to the device. The printer only printed every other character,
including the LF character.

If I send a file like this:

12345
67890
abcde
fghij

then I get this
24
79 acefhj

Can someone help me please?
