Q: How do I get RPM Remote Print ManagerĀ® to print both text and PostScript correctly?

A: This is why the LPD protocol supports multiple queues. Set up one queue to print text, with the characteristics you want; set up another queue to pass the PostScript data directly to the printer.

We are sometimes asked whether RPM will automatically switch from text to pass-through when it looks at the data. This is not as simple as it may seem. RPM may support this in the future but for now, we recommend multiple queues.
