I'm trying to duplex print to an HP 2430TN with the ovrprtf duplex(*yes). The ovrprtf command is issued in a clp and I've tried other printers with no luck. Thank You, DLM

Software/Hardware used:
AS400 5270 (V5R4)

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You’ve described what could be a Printer or program problem.
Test: Find any spool file of more than 1 page
chage Duplex to *yes
send to this printer

If it doesn’t print duplex
Dspjob outqname
check the job logs on both active jobs .. they might have messages concerning this.

I tried the 1st, without any success. I did receive an error message CPI404F which doesn’t tell me much of anything other than to check the printer panel which did without any success.

Thank You,

DLM

Now we know it’s the printer setup HP 2430TN
Hopefully someone will jump in here with set-up issues for HP 2430TN in duplex.
It’s something about the device description?

You should have gotten a HP 2430dtn if you want to duplex. The 2430tn does not have a duplex unit in it so you cannot dulex with out doing it manual.

If you have done all the settings then its time to save that rtf file into .doc format and then print this through duplex mode.It should work.
Procedure to change the rtf to doc.
1. Open the rtf.
2.Go to file > save as> Microsoft word doc > save.

Thanks
