Hi Robert
Seasons greetings

Thanks v. much.

With help from Olivier Nicole I was able to telnet to the printer 9100 and 
text types got printed. My questions now are:

1. How do I manage to print single/double sided and determine the page 
orientation for different jobs?
2. How do I print images/ PCl /postscript.

Olivier has a script which he will be sending me tomorrow but I do not know 
whether that deals with those issues.

Warm regards

david
