Can I get the Version 2 LPSERVE to work with printers that are only accessable via AFP? We have a lot of 3820s that I would like to make available to other hosts. We have been running the Columbia version of LPDSERVE for a while but have never been able to get the AFP printers to work since you do not tag ans spool the file to them. ==== Marc Fleischmann - Information Integration Lockheed Missiles & Space Company, Inc.

Don't know about LPSERVE since I'm still using the Columbia code but I am supporting 3820's. One of the things the Columbia code will do is call an exec when it get's a file to print. I use that feature to drive the 3820. I've appended the exec and printcap entry I use below. Sorry it's not documented too well - it was yet another quick & dirty fix when we moved our 3820 from our MVS system to VM. Thanks again to the good folks at Columbia for making the code available. > >==== >Marc Fleischmann - Information Integration >Lockheed Missiles & Space Company, Inc.
