There is the pending job. Lpc says queuing is enabled printing is
enabled 1 entry in spool area etc....

I begin to suspect there is a cable problem, with windows95 and
directly with postscript I can print, but when lpq says that lp is
ready and printing I notice that the data led on my printer lights,
and sometimes the printer loads a sheet of paper. I will try
another printer cable. But the question is, what "handshake" the
lpd do with the printer? I mean, what return value/signal lpd would
receive from the printer before send another data?
