    I have a HP720C printer. Connected to a the parallel port on my Computer under Debian sarge (testing) it works fine.
    A few days ago i bought the broadband-router Barricade 7004 ABR from SMC. There is a parallel Port on this router with LPD-Printer-Server (lpt1@
    Various tries to print lead to following error:
    All the pages i've sent to the router was printed up to a little rest of the page at the bottom.
    The print stops and the Power-Button blinks.
    After a few seconds there is a noise in the printer like the beginning of the print.
    I've tried the LPR-System with 'redirection', i.e. first filtering through pnm2ppa and then redirect in the remote Queue.
    Then i've tried the LPRng-System with the filter pnm2ppa.
    At the end i've decide to take cups.
    But the result is the same.
    In a former posting was written, that the stop of print is caused by a configuration failure in the local case.
    Any idea?

      The problem is solved. It has nothing to do with the pnm2ppa-software. It is a failure in the implementation of the barricadeimplementation of the printerserver, i think.
