    PostScript Problems

    807567
      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
      MIME-Version: 1.0
      Content-Type: text/plain
      Content-Length: 314

      Your request hq-fin-laser-71 destined for hq-fin-laser

      The job title was: pop_r05.pcl

      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?

      Thanks
