HP Printer truncating lines? (telnet)

» close window

The Question is:

We are trying to use UCX to print to HP LasterJet 5Si printers. When we print
 from DCL, the lines truncate at 80 characters. We have tried to change many of
 the terminal characteristics to match out LA310 printers which line wrap
 correctly but the problem
Here is the terminal setup:IDXALP$ sho term lta555:
Terminal: _LTA555:    Device_Type: Unknown       Owner: No Owner
Input:    9600     LFfill:  0      Width:80      Parity: None
utput:   9600     CRfill:  0      Page:24

The Answer is :

  In addition to the OpenVMS terminal settings (LTA555:, in this
  case), please also check the settings at the DECserver port.
  Please also see the discussions of IP printing in topic 1020.
