I have a USB inkjet printer connected to a server running CentOS 5.7 (64). I installed and enabled cups-lpd so that another Unix server could send print jobs to that printer.
The other Unix server assumes you want a banner page printed unless you use the
-o nobanner option on it's
lp command but I have an application there that uses
lp but has no way to specify that option.
Consequently, the LPD transacion includes a "Print banner page" option (RFC1179 section 7.5) - at least I'm fairly sure (though I haven't checked with tcpdump etc)
The result is I get an unwanted page saying "Cover Page" in big letters and giving Job-Id, Title and User name. This serves no purpose in my environment.
Is there any way to configure cups-lpd to ignore this "print banner page" flag?
Update: Here's the start of /etc/cups/printers.conf
