hpux and hp2035n

One of my remote sites is using an hp2035n for general output from desktop machines and it's working well.
I've hooked it up to an hpux 11.11 box and it prints through lpd except it has an annoying problem. All output through lpd always ends up on the manual feed. Users have to go push the "ok, i really want to print through manual feed" button.
We've turned manual feed off through the web interface's pcl section but the problem persists.
Ideally I'd like the output to go to tray one or tray two.

Ideas?

Hello Dean,
Which model script did you use ?
Some printers are quite picky about their driver script.

You can down load the model scripts from for hppi to use from here

Re: hpux and hp2035n

thx for the link- I had to hunt around a few weeks ago for the model scripts on hp's site.
The printer is using the correct model script (net_ljP2035) but is just geeking our on the manual feed thing.

You mean lp? There is no lpd on HP-UX as it is a SysV spooler, not BSD.

To control the output tray (and a whole bunch of other things), check the printer script man page for the options. Try:

lp -dmyprinter -obin1

To make this the default, you'll need to edit the printer script in /etc/lp/interface/model.orig

Re: hpux and hp2035n

Your suggestion was close enough to be a winner. -otray2 did the trick. On this printer tray1 is manual feed and tray2 is the first output tray.

Re: hpux and hp2035n

you know you can tweak the model script to make tray2 the default, right?
