C5600 does not print on 2nd paper tray [solved; user error]

first off, thanks a lot for the implementation!

I yet do have a very annoying problem; my printers setup is equipped with an additonal 2nd paper tray. On printing I am able to select this tray but the printer never actually uses it!

Let me depict it:

The printer is as follows

---
| Manual feed
---
| Paper tray (original)
---
| Second paper tray (optional)
---

I can print to the manual freed and the optional second paper tray, if I however
want to use the Paper tray (original) now, it does not work! I can select it, but the printer seems to ignore the selection!

What to do??

Thx an lot!

Please print the 8 documents in http://foo2hiperc.rkkda.com/tmp/c5600/ and tell me where they went. This is from a Windows driver with two trays configured.
$ nc 192.168.x.y 9100 < c5600-auto=off-auto.prn
etc...

hello! thanks again,

the error seems to have been corrected: The mistake was as follows; if under Linux the paper size is not equivalent with the one set for a certain tray on the printer, there is no chance to send a job to that tray nevertheless.

So to make a tray accessible the paper size has to be equivalent to the one set in the office program (no matter what paper is loaded in the tray in reality...)!

Thank you however for the way you would have helped, and sorry for your preparatory testing work!!!

All the best,
marco
