I want to send pjl command to my printer via network. I read PJL documentation that is available on hp site
I try to
- send pjl command in the form of file to CUPS( via lp command)
- send pjl command via telnet
- copy pjl file to lp0(device file) in Linux
- send pjl file to the printer via printfile software in wondows
But in none of these methods does the printer respond to the commands and does not recognize the commands and prints them.
how can i send pjl command to printer and get response

See the PJL Technical Reference Manual:
Here is another one specific to PCL5:
Do regular print jobs work from this PC to the printer?

What are you trying to achieve with the PJL command?
If the printer is printing the PJL command set that you're sending it, then something is not right in the command string. Usually the Esc character is incorrect. If needed, I could send you a properly coded file that you could then modify to do what you want. Ideally you should use Notepad++ to edit the file without changing the Esc characters, then saving it as an unformatted file type.
