Character Set Printing to HP LaserJet 1300?

» close window

The Question is:

I'm trying to print to a HP LaserJet 1300 N using a printqueue. The testfile
 contains the german special characters "dv|_" and the are printed as some
 funny special characters
any ideas?

The Answer is :

  Please contact the support center, as details of the special characters
  and the character set(s) involved will be of interest.  The OpenVMS
  Wizard does not immediately recognize this error nor this configuration,
  but it would appear that the OpenVMS host and/or the printer does not
  support the particular character set(s) in use.  Obviously.
  DCPS (DECprint Services) is the usual path to LaserJet printers.
  For additional IP-related printing details, please see topic (1020).
