I am trying to make an external HP jet direct print server work with a
matrix printer on SCO 5.02
I have enabled the HP drivers that are included with SCO and it works
just fine with an HP laserjet printer attached and defined using the
HPLaserJet model setting in the scoadmin printer manager.
But the matrix printer I am using is a Genicom and does not work with
the HP printer language. If I use the HP 'test printer output' option
from the HP setup menu, I get output to the matrix (but it has HP
control sequences in it).
If I just set the printer up as wh3840em with the few basic controls I
need in the terminfo.lp file and recompile it with tic and then set the
model to wh3840em I get no output through LP.
I have a feeling it has something to do with the hpnpf program/network
filter, man gives hints that this is the case, however I am not really
sure how or where to implement the hpnpf program so that normal LP
control of the matrix printer will work.
Any clues or help you can give will be great.
Thanks for your help.
