Many different remote printer names may be set up, all directed to the same Ethernet remote host, and each is given a different local printer name to be redirected. Different types of print jobs may be sent to different printer names, which will then all print out on the same printer, through the same Ethernet interface, but using different filters.
The remote printer name options used to invoke the different filters are as follows:
Binary files (no filters)
ASCII files (carriage returns at line ends)
Binary file with form feed at file end
ASCII file with form feed at file end
All other remote printer name options will be treated the same as lpb.
The following is an example of sending a text file, "txtfile", via lpr with a form feed appended:
The following UNIX systems can print using the standard lpr command.
SunSoft Solaris 2.4 or later
SunOS 4.1.4 or later
IBM AIX 3.2.5 or later and 4.1.3 or later
