Ubuntu 16.04 with CUPS 2.1.3 print system
NEC Silentwriter 1097 with parallel port on SAMBA share (hosted by WinXP SP3)
Basic connectivity verified working
CUPS error log: EMPTY

If I "Print to File" with Output Format PS and later send it to a SAMBA print server (via lpr), all is well. If I print to the SAMBA print server using the installed manufacturer's PPD (NC_10971.PPD), a blank page is rendered. I have isolated the print job file (in /var/spool/cups) and determined it is in PDF format. The print job file MUST be in PS format. How do I change the CUPS standard output format of PDF for this printer only or modify the PPD to accomplish this?
