You didn't mention which Lexmark printer (it does matter).
Check the IBM Knowledgebase doc and make sure the mfrtypmdl is set right - and if SNMP supported, try it, then pjl, and last is lpr...
Postscript - no...
I'm not surprised someone said replace the network card... there have been issues. If this is an older printer, or old software version in the printer, check for updates.
It should handle the pjl & postscript switch (if configured right & updated software).
Is there an ipds card in the printer?

Subject: PJL and PostScript

A Lexmark printer on the network prints from at least two systems. One is HP and that system is sending PostScript. It was working just fine. However, the i was another system. It was sending PJL.Initially, it was set up as a remote output queue. I changed it to a device. No difference, If the output queue was held, the spool file was on the i. Release the queue, and the job history on the Lexmark showed the spool file arriving and the buffer being flushed. I was told that this has happened before, and the network card had to be replaced in the printer. J\I know nothing would get sent back to QSYSOPR when configured as a remote output queue. So, I changed it. I did see a message to change forms - which was answered by reply list. But nothing else.

On v5r4.

The Lexmark actually has PJL as a default.

Two questions:

1) Can v5r4 send PostScript?
2) Anybody else run into this, and if so, were you able to get some message back on QSYSOPR?
