Pull separator page from different tray



I'm printing from serveral Windows XP SP2 systems over an Ethernet
network to an HP LaserJet 8150, PCL 6, installed as a TCP/IP printer. I
need to have a separator page print after each print job, but the
separator page paper will be of a different stock and color than the
paper of the print jobs. The purpose is to make print jobs visually
easy to separate at the printer.

I don't know beforehand how many pages each print job will be, so I
need to pull the color paper from one of the printer's other trays.

How can I best go about this? Is there a command in PCL to send an
additional 1-page print job, the paper of which will be pulled from the
second printer tray, after each print job gets sent?

The separator page normally pulls from the Default Tray configured on the
device. Set the tray you want as the default tray using the printer access

Now on the computer set the configuration for the printer to pull from a
specific tray on the device. The default is probably Auto (which will pick
the device default tray where your sep stock paper resides).
