Dear Colleagues,

I'm trying to use a Brother HL-L2340D printer as a simple networked
line printer with lpd. I've successfully used HP and Canon printers like
that with a simple printcap like this:

# by VAS
lp|Brother HL-L2340D series:\

but the story with Brother HL-L2340D is different. When fed some input 
with "lptest |lpr", it just spits out 3 empty pages. I've never seen
anything like that before.

I'm wondering if someone has this printer and made it work as a line

 From the specification at
it should support LPD.
