FOOMATIC-GETPJLOPTIONS(8)   System Manager's Manual  FOOMATIC-GETPJLOPTIONS(8)

NAME
       foomatic-getpjloptions -	<put a short description here>

SYNOPSIS
       foomatic-getpjloptions device

       foomatic-getpjloptions hostname port

DESCRIPTION
       foomatic-getpjloptions  Sends  a	set of PJL commands and	reads back the
       PJL options and status from a printer over a network connection or  de-
       vice  bidirectional  interface such as parallel,	USB, serial.  printers
       to standard output. The output can be piped into	foomatic-addpjloptions
       to add options to the database.

   Options
       device	 The  interface	 to  which  a local printer is connected, e.g.
		 /dev/lp0, /dev/usb/lp0,  /dev/tty00,  etc.   For  a  parallel
		 port, you must	have bidirectional support enabled at the BIOS
		 level and the parallel	port driver must support the  bidirec-
		 tional	 mode.	 Check	your  parallel	port BIOS settings for
		 EPP/bi-directional mode.

       hostname	 Host name or IP address of a network printer  (HP  JetDirect,
		 DLINK,	etc.).

       port	 Port  on  which your network printer listens for socket (App-
		 socket) connections.  Most common ports are 9100 (JetDirect),
		 10000 (DLINK).	 Usually you can configure the port via	a con-
		 figuration interface.

EXIT STATUS
       foomatic-getpjloptions returns ???

AUTHOR
       Manfred	Wassmann  <manolo@NCC-1701.B.Shuttle.de>  for	the   foomatic
       project	using  output from the associated binary.  Modified by Patrick
       Powell <papowell	at lprng.com> to provide betters support  for  network
       printers, error messages, and remove CR and FF from output.

WARNINGS
       Uni-directional	protocols as remote LPD	are not	supported as no	status
       is returned.  Some network print	servers	which attach to	a printer par-
       allel port do not support bidirectional mode.
