Lpd problem

Post by Ung-Ho » Sat, 08 Jun 1996 04:00:00



I would really appreciate anyone's help on this problem.
We are running TGV MultiNet V3.4 Rev A, VAX 6000-320, VAX/VMS V5.5-2.
Our queue looks like this
Printer queue LPD_SLA059, idle, on SIF::NLP2:, mounted form DEFAULT
  <LPD queue on 140.254.136.146 TEXT>
  /BASE_PRIORITY=4 /DEFAULT=(FEED,FORM=DEFAULT) /LIBRARY=SYSDEVCTL Lowercase
  /OWNER=[SYSTEM] /PROCESSOR=MULTINET_LPD_SYMBIONT /PROTECTION=(S:RWED,O:RWED,
  G:RWED,W:RWED)

We are using Hp laser jet 4Mplus.  Everything looks okay except for
the line feed.  The print out looks like a one long line.
Here is an example.

line1 goes here.
                 line2 goes here.
                                  line3 goes here.

It seems to how to go to next line, but doesn't know how to go to the
beginning of the line.

Thanks for your help in advance,

yi

You've specified the target LPD queuename as "TEXT".  
It's my understanding that the JetDirect (which is
what I assume you're using) is case sensitive, and
wants "text" (lowercase).

I think the problem is not the line-feed but a missing carriage return.
(The linefeed is executed). The problem I cannot solve because I lack
information. (i.e. what file type do you have, what print command did
you use? what is the actual file contents).

Some hints : play arround with print/[NO]PASSALL
             include <CR> in the file.

From what I recall the HP printer has a way of setting how it handles LFs
(i.e. translate to CR/LF) by sending it an escape sequence. What we did -
this was a while ago, and Im straining my memory here.. - was to define a
"setup" module containing the neccessary control-sequence, and print using
a form with /Setup=...
You may want to use a device-specific TLB, but then again
the details are up to you

1. VMS/UCX LPD to UNIX/NT LPD problem.

Hi!

I've setup UCX LPD queues on our VAX machine (VMS 5.4 , UCX 2.x)
so I can print to network printers in our LAN.
I've also created a filter on this machine which converts ascii to
postscript.(All output to the printers are in postscript.)
The UCX LPD queue is connected to the printers in the following ways:

1) Directly to our Lexmark Optra LXI and N printers.
2) Indirectly to our network printers via NT queues.
3) Indirectly to our network printers via UNIX queues.

Soulution number 1 works fine. Only problem is that when
there are large jobs coming from our NT queues to these
Lexmark printers it might cause the UCX LPD queues to stall,
(after a timeout period) if they try to print at the same time.
That's why I also need number 2 and 3.
Also, on these queues I have to prepend a PJL line:


to the output to convince the Lexmark printers it's postscript code.

Solution number 2 will only print the postscript code as
text because of some characters that the VMS/UCX/LPD prepends:
Here are the characters: ^[c^[[2"z^[[0w

The same thing goes for solution number 3, but at least here
it prints the postscript code correctly. Only drawback is that
there's an extra page with: ^[c^[[2"z^[[0w
on it.

Does anyone know how to keep VMS/UCX/LPD from prepending these
characters to the beginning of the file ?

On the Unix queue I could probably modify the filter to remove
the unwanted characters, but if there's an easier way I'd
like to try that first.
