I have an HL-5250DN which has been great, but recently after
printing certain PostScripts it will start saying IGNORE DATA and
it was printing PostScript unrendered, have you seen anything
like that? I had to do a reset, which turned out not to reset
full duplex or draft mode settings which also surprised me.

Also, are you using CUPS, lpr, or what? I have been using lpr
with no drivers or anything on linux and ipp works on windows
with the windows Brother PostScript driver, both over ipv6. I
wish ppdfilt worked with the bsd lpr that comes with debian, its
pretty nice and simple otherwise. As tldp Pringting HOWTO says
"ppdfilt is best used with an option accepting lpd system" and
bsd lpr is not but lprng is. However lprng is not maintained
anymore, does anybody know of another alternative? Thanks.
Nick
