JetDirect setup information

JetDirect queues, etc.

HP Jetdirect Print Servers - New Features and Fixes of x.08.32 HP Jetdirect (http://www.hp.com/cposupport/networking/support_doc/bpj06693.html) gives much info on the Jet Direct card.

Using Jet Direct to CORRECTLY prints BOTH PostScript and text

at55

Printing menu:
Last option: Append CR to LF -- turn this on
[this option is NOT visible to the web interface]

Configuration menu:
Personality: Auto
[this option is visible from web interface]

This combination of settings seems to make the
printer process PostScript AND PCL correctly.

Further, because of the Append CR to LF, plain UNIX text files are
processed correctly.  (They need the CR because UNIX terminates
lines with LF, NOT CRLF or LFCR)

Our tests with PostScript and plain text worked great!

hp81 now prints via UNIX dist. printer to the JetDirect card.

NOTE this: telnet b937-736-hp8100dn.lbl.gov

Note that the hp81 queue in fact connects to the queue named HP81 
(NOT the queue RAW).

Note that the Queue Name: HP81 on the JetDirect is
set to Processing: TEXT

gives lots of good info on this subject.

So far, this configuration prints BOTH PostScript and plain text correctly.

Print BOTH PostScript and plaintext to HPLJ2200 (e.g., bl50lp); turn off banner
