Does SAPlpd pass data to my printer driver?


I am now using SAPGOF device type and trying to print data to my printer. I use "F:Printing on Front End Computer" on my Spool Administration setting.

I expect the SAPlpd is sending data (SAPGOF data) to my printer driver, then the printer driver will be doing something before it sends the data to Windows Spooler to print.

Is my understanding above correct?

Someone told me actually SAPlpd will not use printer driver in this case, but the SAPGOF data is sent directly to the Microsoft Windows Print Manager. So the printer driver will not receive the SAPGOF data.

Is the above statement correct?

How to verify it?

Please advice.

Thanks and best regards
