Hello Jeff,

I followed the link Buck supplied and there's a table confirming what I
guessed before: the Xerox 265 is NOT able to understand PJL-(Port)
Printing through IP.
You have to use a RMTOUTQ.
If you follow the links in this documents further on, there is an explanation
of values for the LPD-queue names to be used with different types of
printers. The 265 is not listed under the Xerox-section, but if you did not
define some queue name on your own (inside the Xerox-box), I' m pretty
sure that one of the standard names will work. (Just replace your name
'INVOICEPRT' with those values and try stopping and starting the wirter
program again).

HTH, Philipp Rusch
