telnet 515
Connected to NPI2B483C.
Escape character is '^]'.

port 515 is not accepting file directly, when I tried the output.xqx to
this port nothing happened, only 9100 accepts

How in CUPS i will be able to use foo2xqx-wrapper, plus I am planning to
add smart apsfilter from ports on top . I would like that all print jobs
are converted first by apsfilter into postscript, then foo2xqx-wrapper
makes them compatible for HP and finally I ship this data over network to
my printer

generally i would prefer to stick with the native freebsd printing system
which is LPD
