Thanks. So you have this as a local parallel device. It might be worth trying
to set it as a PTAL device, i.e. using the hpoj package.
To do this, see: <http://cyberelk.net/tim/hpoj.html>.
(It may be that it needs special OfficeJet commands to function correctly.)
Let me know if that makes things better/worse.
Closing, no feedback.
