Assuming you are running the latest ECO kit for TCP/IP Services for

The latest TCP/IP Services printcap documentation is available on
the OpenVMS documentation website -- please see the OpenVMS FAQ for

address specific questions to the OpenVMS Wizard or to the Compaq
Customer Support Center. (Note: The OpenVMS Wizard is unaware of
any documentation of nor any "lpd" keyword in the printcap file.)
