Printing Issue

I have a printing issue I need some help with. I have a printer that will advance a sheet of paper prior to printing a print job. This is not a banner page, it's just a blank page. The O/S is AIX. I know that in SCO and Other Unix's there are printer interface files that more or less tell the printer how to operate. I cannot find these "interface" files in AIX. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

It's been some time since I used AIX, but try looking in /etc/lp
If this doesn't find the interface files you can always do a search for the work interface. A bit long winded I know

cd /
find . -name interface* -print
