How to pass flags to NT from MVS


ENV: AIX 3.2.5, WIndows NT, SNA Server/6000

Customer data is not printing landscape on the NT.

When we double queue on the AIX system, we get extra
garbage at the top.  By double queue I mean set up a local
queue that prints to a file and change the mo attribute to
a print command to print to the remote queue setup to
print to the NT system.

We found from another item that to send formatted data to an
NT server.   It is best at AIX 3.2.5 to create a remote printer,
and then to create a virtual printer. with the mo attribute set to

mo=lpr -l -Prem_queue_name

The -l tells the NT to let the data passthrough untouched.

We found this worked well.


User found that this was sending 2 formfeeds ( blank page ).
This is easily fixed by changing the 'Z' virtual printer
attribute to !.
