Print thermal labels
We are no longer able to print to our label printer. The PC we were using had to be replaced. We need to know how to set up this printer so it will print addresses via USB connection. I downloaded and installed the correct drivers for the printer. I used printer model *WSCST to configure the printer session. I need to know how to set up the outq and the printer session. Thank you!

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

The printer is local via USB.

The OS is V6R1.

The PC is Windows 7 professional.

The printer is a thermal label printer that is not supported by IBM.  It was working and now that the PC is down we are unable to configure it.  I have been with this company for 3 months so I have no idea what was doen before.

I need to figure out how to set it up from scratch.  Creating an outq using printer model IBM 42023 does not work with a printer session defined with the same printer model.

MFRTYPMDL   IBM 42023
WSCST              QWPDEFAULT

I also tried creating a remote outq, but I must not have the right values for some parameters.

    How is the connection defined to the print server? What is the server OS version and cume level? What is the PC OS? Is this an iSeries Access printer? If so, what is the version on the PC, including service level? IF it's a LPR connection, how is the OUTQ defined? There might be other questions after those are answered. -- Tom

    Most likely, the previous setup was as an iSeries Access printer session. Assuming that the PC has no problem using the printer, general configuration for a new printer session on the PC for the AS/400 goes through this sequence -- Start menu-> Programs-> IBM System i Access for Windows-> Emulator-> Start or Configure Session. When the Session Manager starts, click [New Session...]. I can't tell you what all should be specified from there, but it's necessary to select the [Printer] radio button in the 'Type of emulation' group. If the printer device description already exists on the AS/400, you already know what name to use. You probably should save the existing device description attributes, perhaps simply by printing them, before actually creating this new version. There might be existing attributes that can help in defining the new one. -- Tom

    Post back with any progress or obstacles. With an unsupported printer, it can be trial and error. -- Tom
