My original inquiry:
I have a QMS/PS 800 postscript printer that worked find on the
serial port of a PC. Now we want to attach it to a Sun. The
printer is set to 9600 and defaults to no parity, XON/XOFF flow control.
I have the printer on serial port A of the sun and have set up
all the lpr/printcap stuff on the Sun. The problem is that I
can cat a postscript file out the port and it prints fine. Using
lpr however, the file queues and spools as expected on the Sun,
the receive light blinks on the printer for a reasonable length
of time, but nothing ever prints out.
I received many helpful replies. The solution turned out to be
disabling the banner page in the printcap file. Thanks to all who

My apologies if I left anyone out, it was not deliberate.
