Dear Colleagues,

I'm trying to use a Brother HL-L2340D printer as a simple networked
line printer with lpd. I've successfully used HP and Canon printers like
that with a simple printcap like this:

# by VAS
lp|Brother HL-L2340D series:\
        :sh:\
        :rp=3DTEXT_P1:\
        :rm=3D192.168.1.74:sd=3D/var/spool/output/lpd1:lf=3D/var/log/lpd-er=
rs:

but the story with Brother HL-L2340D is different. When fed some input=20
with "lptest |lpr", it just spits out 3 empty pages. I've never seen
anything like that before.

I'm wondering if someone has this printer and made it work as a line
printer.

 From the specification at
https://support.brother.com/g/b/spec.aspx?c=3Dus&lang=3Den&prod=3Dhll2340dw=
_us_eu_as
it should support LPD.
