I need to get the PDF file from this C10.pcapng in the attachment. I already tried to follow the TCP Stream, save it as a RAW file, and convert it to a PDF file, but all it was showing was gibberish icons in the PDF. I was wondering if what I'm doing is already correct or not. I even find an info on Stack Exchange that it is not possible to get the PDF file from a printing job. So my questions are:

is it possible to get the Installation.pdf file from this printing job?

if it is possible can anyone show me the proper way to do it?

It's not a PDF, instead it's a printer job using HP Printer Job Language (PJL).

Yes it is, now what I want to know is that can I get the original PDF that was printed with that PJL?

Unless you can find a PJL to PDF converter I think that's a no.
