but, if i'm not wrong, the spooler (lpd) has to be configured for a specific printer and u have to set up drivers for that. So in the case that the AS400 prepares the printer output for me, could i send this 'raw' data directly to 'lpt1'? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Marcia and Richard Hartmann" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Saturday, August 18, 2001 8:03 PM Subject: [LINUX5250] Re: LINUX5250 digest, Vol 1 #7 - 1 msg > The support for tn5250e printers(RFC1287) uses telnet server and TCP/IP.
