Settings to ease use of Laser Printers 
We have used the AFPDS data stream instead of the IFPDS setting on overrides to 
the printer set up as an IP Outq through the lan.   With this option we are 
able to handle  use overides, include page segments, change fonts, send 
overlays for Company Logos, bar code, and other commands.

Also, the outq setting handles the pagerange and multiup usage options without 

One downside is that we have had difficulty switching paper bin selections on 
the fly.   We have a need sometimes to switch between 8 1/2x 11 and legal size 
documents and have not been able to do this automatically.

The benefit of the AFPDS datastream over IPDS is that the pc printer does not 
require a special card to convert to the printer language.    We have never had 
a problem with documents over 100 pages.
