Remote LPD Printing
The way print jobs are queued to a Remote LPD system varies among the vendors that support TCP/IP. UNIX systems that are BSD-based typically use the lpr program to submit print jobs. Other UNIX systems may use the lp program to submit print jobs. PC-based TCP/IP packages often provide a command line lpr program and a utility to redirect the output of an LPT port to a Remote LPD system.
Consult your system administrator or software vendor for assistance troubleshooting LPD.
Note: The Remote LPD implementation of the OkiLAN 6200e does not support any UNIX LPD input or output filters or the direct printing of banner pages. It is possible to configure some UNIX systems so that banner pages and input and output filters will be generated at the UNIX host and then sent to the OkiLAN 6200e. (Refer to Application Considerations.)
