Description david.heim 2000-05-03 17:21:09 EDT
The Linux lpd daemon appears to send bad information.  The Windoze TCPIP
print server of course does not indicate the problem, but upon setting up
the HP-UX FAXPRT printer as a remote queue on the linux server I found that
the linux server was requesting over a billion copies of the fax print size
information in request is fairly bogus. linux does not offer much in the
way of 'tracking' errors or status of the print request.

I set up the Rightfax (WinNT fax software) queue on our Digital UNIX server
as a linux printer and it fared no better.

It's probably an NT bug - but given the lack of error messages, we can't tell
for sure.
Does upgrading to LPRng (in Rawhide, or at
http://www.astart.com/LPRng_main_page.htm, if you prefer to build from source)
