    Since I upgraded to Windows 2000, professional, (from Win 98se) anytime I send a print job to a printer on an LPT port (1 or 2) I receive an extra blank page at the end of the job. This does not happen when I print a test page from properties nor does it happen when I send a job to a network printer.

    No extra pages are printed when I send a text file to lpt1 from cmd prompt.

    I have not requested a separator page. What do I need to do to eliminate this extra page?

    Try uninstalling the printer from windows and reinstalling it. Make sure you have the latest drivers (obtained from the printer's manufacturer's website).
