Hmmmm.... If you've got a remote queue with local filtering, AIX should
format and send the job to NT which should obey the pass-thru flag sent by
default with local filtering. You could do an iptrace to ensure the job
goes across the network:
iptrace -a -b -p 515 -s aixIPaddr -d ntIPaddr /tmp/trace
send a small job
ipreport /tmp/trace > /tmp/report
The report should show the converstation between rembak on AIX and the NT
lpd. Typically when I see a blank page eject, it's the result of printing
non-Postscript to a Postscript only queue, missing carriage returns not
being added to linefeeds, etc.
