First of all: there is a group (yes, there is another
life outside bionet.molbio.methds-reagnts) ...

I am _NO_ mac expert, but if you succeed to transfer a postscript _file_
to your mac and print it there (don't ask me how this is done on a mac :-) )
you might try:

$ postscript

Use PostScript ... [ stuff deleted ]

To what port is your LASERWRITER connected (* TERM *) :
                                                        ^^^^^^^^ enter file
name at this prompt, then proceed as usual and finally transfer
that file to your mac and _print_ it (or view it or ..)

These pages of numbers you saw was the postscript output, directed
to your terminal ( and what should a mac terminal emulator do with postscript?)

Hope that solves your problem,
