LPD printing and extra linefeed (LF)?

» close window

The Question is:

Using tcpip v.5.0a I am trying to replace pathworks print service with LPD. It
 all works OK except that I get a LF with every FF that I write from my
 application. I am pretty sure that the extra LF is being added by the LPR
 print symbiont. Multinet has a
print option called NOFFLF. Is there a similar switch in TCPIP/LPD or some
 other way of fixing this ?

The Answer is :

  Assuming topic 4811 and the TCPIP$LPD_SETUP_NOFF mechanisms do not assist
  you here -- you do not mention the target platform for LPD nor specifics
  of the printing configuration -- please contact the folks at the Compaq
  Customer Support Center directly for assistance.
