Hi again,

    I have been trying to get my freebsd box to print postscript to a 
remote hp laserjet 4si using ghostscript in a filter and have met 
with no success.  I suspect that the problem is that the file is not 
being passed through the filter.  I say this because after trying to 
get the simple filter that I wrote to work I tried using a "test" 
filter that wrote some lines to a file in  /tmp...and nothing 
happened.   Here's what my printcap file looks like:

#   @(#)printcap    5.3 (Berkeley) 6/30/90

#lp|local line printer:\
#   :lp=/dev/lp:sd=/var/spool/output/lpd:lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:
lp|remote laserjet printer:\

and this is what the psfilt looks like:

/usr/local/bin/gs -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=ljet4 -sOutputFile=- -

I don't understand why this isn't working....I've read everything 
that I can find and tried everything that I know to do.

Please let me know if there is something that I am doing wrong or if 
there is something I am missing.

Btw. the system is running 2.0.5-RELEASE if that makes a difference.
