OK, I've got it to where it will at least print now. However, I'm
major stair stepping and when I try to use the filter, I just get page
page of nothing.
Here is my printcap file and my filter. I'm hoping I'm just missing a
in the printcap.

At Fri, 30 Jun 2000 it looks like Tom DeSot composed:
TD-->I've tried several printcap files and it never prints anything out.
TD-->look at my print debug files it tells me it can't resolve the host.
TD-->thing though, I used another print test utility and it spit out
what I had
TD-->just tried to print from lpr.
TD-->Am I missing something in my printcap file to force the page feed?
TD-->anyone had this experience and found that it just won't work?
TD-->I'd really appreciate any help that could be given.
Can we see the printcap files with some comments on what happened
with each ?
Are you pointing to the printer by name or IP address ? Same network
? Can you "ping" the printer by name ? or by number ?
