Depending on the configurations of the printers, some may not be able to use the UX filter.
Text files, SunRaster image files (for Solaris only), TIFF image files and XWD image files received from a workstation
connected to a printer by a USB cable or parallel cable (hereinafter referred to as the local workstation), or from one
located on the network (hereinafter referred to as the remote workstation), can be converted into the PostScript language
program and output to the printer.
In addition, it can also be used in an environment where a printer, installed with an interface board, is connected directly
to the network.
