this is my scenario (windows workgroup):
windows xp sp2, epson epl6100L (shared as '6100L')
linux rh9, lpd with a queue named 'p6100L'

if I do an 'smbclient \\xp\6100L -p' I get to the xp machine, but if I 'print /etc/hosts'... nothing happens
if I do an 'lp -dp6100L /etc/hosts' same results, nothing gets printed...

one thing I noticed, whenever I send a job, I can see that something reaches the xp's spool, but it's like a flash, it disappears as soon as it gets there...

any ideas/tips/solutions/whatever would be greatly appreciated (have no more hair to pull off my head)

thanks in advance
