HP4LaserJet + Sco Unix

Hi I know this question has already asked before but most of the answers are quite general.

We're using a Sco Unix v3.2 server as an application and print server. We also have a remote Sco Unix server connect to our local server using PPP and a remote HP4 using DirectJet card. Connection is ok put but printing is not perfect.

It is ok if I print a single page to the remote printer but anything longer than one page will give me a blank page as well. Something about form feed ? I already installed HP's printer driver as well but not sure how to fix this problem.

Much help is appreciated and please be specific if possible because I'm just a newbie.

Remove the final echoing of a formfeed in the interface script (for your particular printer)
in var/spool/lp/admins/lp/printers/

you probably meant /usr/spool/lp/admins/lp/interfaces ? The HP's printer interface file are in model.orig directory (it's in one of the readme of HP's printer driver)

Just confirm.

Thanks
