Removing TAB from Telnet Printing?

» close window

The Question is:

Using a LAT Queue I can enable <VT> (ASCII #9)
characters to be replaced by SPACEs by invoking
Using TCPIP$TELNETSYM there is no such
terminal. How can I let VMS replace such
vertical TABs with the corresponding number
of SPACEs?
(The attached lineprinter does not support
vertical TAB setting.)

The Answer is :

  You will need to filter the character before sending it, locate a
  telnet symbiont (in, for instance, a terminal server) that can
  translate the character, locate a printer (assuming an integrated
  telnet symbiont) with support for TAB, write a TFF or symbiont to
  translate the tab character before passing it along, or switch back
  to LAT.
