Mike Rembis ( said that they
had also experience some problems printing from Solaris to a BSD host
and that patch 101025-08 to Solaris had fixed their problems.

Eric Falen ( said they had they same problem with their setup,
and that it was because they had a "-" (dash) in the printer name.
Since my printer queue also had a dash in its name this may have been
the cause.

Installing the patch to Solaris cured the problem. Thanks for the tip
Mike. Next time I'll look through the patch list.

Thanks again,
Gil Crouse
