CUPS prints after 15 seconds no matter what :( - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi all; I'm trying to use CUPS but we have an odd requirement that it doesn't seem to fulfill: We're using some DOS emulation software called RealNG (printing is configured to use 'lpr'...or any other command line utility) and CUPS prints after a 15-second timeout, whether the job has been closed or not. Is it possible to stop CUPS from closing (and printing) jobs it assumes are finished? If I was using LPRng then I could can specify 'connect_timeout=0' in its configuration file (LPD.conf, I think).. ..but CUPS' implementation of lpr just ignores this as far as I can tell ...

    I'm changed from LPRng to CUPS because we're printing to Novel print queues
    and Windows printer shares, and CUPS handles this beautifuly apart from this
    seemingly-forced timeout. I'd really appreciate suggestions for a
    solution.

    I had a problem similar to that and solved it by adding one more Linux
    machine to my network. Its job was to provide an older technology print
    queue (Not CUPS). Worked for me. I think I used RH 7.0

    No need to use another machine. It is easy enough to just put on an
    "older technology print queue" even an lpd (not lprng) queue onto a new
    system..
    But he wants cups to work.

    Sergei and all,

    Hmmm.. ..perhaps another machine is an option.. ..the main problem is that
    CUPS overwrites the original print queue commands like LPR. If I could use
    them on another machine before they get to CUPS, that might work. But - the
    reason I'm using CUPS is that the printers are Novell print queues and a
    Windows IPP printer.

    If I could figure out how to make the new machine print to CUPS printers
    (IPP, right?) on the original machine without using CUPS then I guess that
    would solve the problem. But how to print to CUPS printers without
    installing CUPS? :(
