    We are working with another Unix provider, getting
    printing working at a remote site with their print
    process.
    We are using a filter that adds CR/LF to their jobs,
    as they cannot do it themselves.
    When they send a multiple page job (Example: 10
    pages), it is sent to our remote linux server as a job
    per page (Example: 10 jobs, 1 page each). We turned
    logging ON, and it showing that we are getting hit
    with these jobs ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
    The first page/job prints correctly, after that
    all 'escape' codes get dropped by the spooler. They
    send sequences to adjust print size only.
    We have tried messing around with the filter file,
    with no success.
    If we capture one of their print jobs to a file, a 1
    page job, and then try this command:

    #> lpr -Pnf2 /tmp/job ; lpr -Pnf2 /tmp/job ; lpr -
    Pnf2 /tmp/job

    We get the same problem, consistently. It LOOKS like
    we are using lpr v50-4, straight off our RedHat 6.2
    installation.
    If we capture several jobs into a file, and then print
    the file (which becomes one larger job instead of
    several small ones) the printing works perfectly.

    Desperately,
    Bruce
