Don't know if you've got this solved yet.  I had the same problem last month;
took me a week to solve!

The solution is published as an IBM Support Line Technical Document titled:
"Turning off the Banner Page for LPR".  I've got a fax copy in front of me
that does not have the document ID or the URL where it was found and I have
just wasted about 30 minutes on IBM's @#$!*%# web site trying to find this
document (don't apologize for that, this is blame squarely on IBM for such a
cr*ppy search engine!)

Anyway, the gist of this document is that for V3R2 & V3R6, you need to do the


If at a later time you would like to re-enable the banner page, you must enter
the following command:


For releases V3R7 and above, the capability to suppress the Banner Page has
been added to the following CL commands: SNDTCPSPLF, CRTOUTQ, CHGOUTQ.
Pressing F10 for Additional Parameters allows the parameter Print Separator
Page (SEPPAGE) to be changed to *NO.  The default value is *YES.

 All the Writers and Output que descriptions and the spool file have ----
File separators  . . . . . . . .   0 .

However we get a PC "file separator"  with the following data for a device
- *HP4 ( the device itself might be a ESPS02 )

Host:    "OurAS400.NFCNA.COM
Class:   172.nn.n.n
Job:       DE500PF1

To my knowledge none of the other remote writer do this, so is it a physical
switch on the printer???   Is it a TCPIP setting I am unaware of?     Just
curious to see if anyone has any ideas where the control for this is.
