Printing with print servers - SCO

This question is a little off topic. I was experimenting from 5.0.6 to a Dlink DP300U print server. I found that I could telnet 10.200.200.99 9100, type some lines of text, close the connection and the text would be printed on the attached printer. The I tried the following: cat textfile | /usr/bin/netcat -h 10.200.200.99 -p 9100 Nothing printed and the printer did not indicate that any data was present. I am just wondering "why it not print?" Any clues?? Ron...

    Default Printing with print servers

    This question is a little off topic.

    I was experimenting from 5.0.6 to a Dlink DP300U print server.

    I found that I could telnet 10.200.200.99 9100, type some lines of text,
    close the connection and the text would be printed on the attached printer.

    The I tried the following:
    cat textfile | /usr/bin/netcat -h 10.200.200.99 -p 9100

    Nothing printed and the printer did not indicate that any data was present.

    I am just wondering "why it not print?"

    Any clues??

    The D-Link DP300u print server does NOT support HP emulation (port
    9100) or printing directly to an IP socket. It only supports LPR/LPD.
