Sending invalid information to the printer

I have a remote user configuring a printer session on the AS/400 connecting parallel to a xerox pro 645 fax/printer....

The session configures ok but when a print job is sent the user either gets a blank page printed or "this program has performed an illegal operation" message on win95. While this is happening a start/stop message appears over and over again on the AS/400 sysop. Any ideas? The user's AS/400 sessions work ok and the printer works fine locally!

The driver or transformation you are using is sending invalid data to the printer. Post this in the OS/400 forum and maybe someone has done this with your printer.
