This is a multipart message in MIME format. -- [ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ] Paul, Thanks for the response, it got me looking in the right direction. We may have found a work-around by changing the printer type from *OKI321IBM to *IBM42011. The lp5250d command now becomes: lp5250d env.DEVNAME=P6 env.IBMTYPMDL='*IBM52011' 10.99.99.1 and the results are as expected. I'm hopeful that this will work because otherwise we will need to figure out how to install the WCO on over 1000 boxes :(. Thanks again for the help!
