We've recently upgraded to Solaris 10 11/06 s10s_u3wos_10 SPARC and I can't get the HP4000N to print anything but straight ascii files.
The client program is apparently sending pcl files which I understand should convert if I use a postscript printer.
I have sent a pcl print to a print file (localq) and it does get there,
I can print straight text files to the printer so it is seeing it
I have tried to do a snoop when when the client prints and there's no packets getting to the printer.
The error (in mail) is as follows:Subject: Status of lp request hq-fin-laser-71
Your request hq-fin-laser-71 destined for hq-fin-laser

encountered an error during filtering.
Filtering stopped with an exit code of 1.
Reason for failure:
a2ps: `stdin' is a binary file, printing aborted
I'm a dba who's going on a Sun Solaris course in September but this printing is needed now. Can anybody help?
