Printing to non-TCP/IP printer:LAT,IPX,...
Posted on 1997-08-19
I have a linux 1.2.13 box on a thin ethernet with a couple
of HP LJ3, LJ4 printers. The LJ's have been serving with
LAT for quite some time, but now we are trying to see how
well we can integrate a Linux box into this cluster. The
NIC on these printers can talk LAT, and supposedly Appletalk and IPX too, but only LAT is used now and has been checked. The card is called an XJET III, from XCD. Whatever. I guess DEC is still closely guarding LAT. STill true? Are there any other alternatives for printing to a non-tcp/ip network printer? Many thanks,
