Remote Printing (LPR) Hints and Tips
| || Printing to HP LaserJet and Similar Printers|
When the VM TCP/IP LPR command or RSCS LPR support is used to
print files to Hewlett Packard (HP) LaserJet, Apple LaserWriter, and
similar printers, initial printing attempts using various queue names
often fail, or produce only a header page with no associated text.
However, satisfactory results can likely be achieved using the
following options and printer queue names:
When printing plain-text files, direct the print file to the
text printer queue.
To print landscape files, direct the print file to the
raw printer queue, and specify the LPR LANDSCAPE option.
Printer queue names are very often case sensitive.
For more information about these queues and their use, consult the
appropriate documentation for your printer. For example, for HP
printers, the appendix titled " Configuring the HP JetDirect
Interface to Use LPD" of the HP JetDirect Network
Interface Configuration Guide provides this kind of information.

manufacturer's "technical support" Web page. URLs for the
