What is telling the printer to print in landscape? Is it something on the
server (HPUX), or something on the PC?
If you are setting something on the server, that is probably causing the
server to include an escape sequence to control the printer. If your
emulator doesn't handle this sequence well, that could cause problems.
Also in this case, the codes would have to be correct for the kind of
printer you are using? What kind is that? If the codes were PCL codes for
an HP LaserJet printer, but you have a different kind of printer,
especially a "Windows only" printer, that could cause problems.
AnzioWin, our terminal emulator, could solve that problem.
