Re: Extra print page

Do
$ telnet marvin

quit (or was it exit, make sure it is saved)

It is a laserjet option !

Re: Extra print page

Hi,

Define the logical UCX$LPD_VMS_FLAGPAGES as follows and stop/restart the queue once :-


$define/system ucx$lpd_vms_flagpages 1

OR for define logical TCPIP$LPD_VMS_FLAGPAGES for TCP/IP version 5.x

Thanks & regards,
Lokesh

Re: Extra print page

As you are using TCPIP$LPD_SMB , so for you the logical would be TCPIP$LPD_VMS_FLAGPAGES...

HTH,
Thanks & regards,

Re: Extra print page

Despite all the different fixes discussed for this over the years, I could never fix the extra page issue on a range of HP printers at the site I used to administer. I gave up in the end and told the users to reuse the blank sheets.

As things stand at the moment, I'm using LPD at home to throw jobs from a PC and from an AlphaServer running VMS onto a Linux system. My HP DJ 940C is connected to the parallel port on the Linux system. The Alpha doesn't throw an extra page out, but my PC does! :os

Re: Extra print page

I have read somewhere that one should not re-use paper that has gone through a laser printer or copier. It comes 'pre-stressed' (at least that is what the dictionary translates the German word 'vorgespannt') and must be feed in the printer with the correct side up.

If you are using setup modules that contain non-ANSI control sequences in them (i.e. PCL), bracket the code between an P and an \

P ...Printer Escape Codes... \
