Generic TCIP Print Server to talk to AS400/ISeries/I5

We are unable to get the AS400 to talk to a generic D-Link TCPIP Print Server. We can ping from the 400, but we cannot print to it. We setup a remote writer and the spool just stays in a "send" status. Can this be done, if so how? thanks, Mark

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

This may/May not help. but per IBM article…

dlink does not support the protocol needed to communicate to the AS/400 spool services. But I was able to at least send data to a d-link DP300 via LPD using the Queue name of “LPT1_TEXT”. The config for this would be:

CRTOUTQ OUTQ(QTEMP/TEMP)
RMTSYS(*INTNETADR)
RMTPRTQ(LPT1_TEXT)
CNNTYPE(*IP)
DESTTYPE(*OTHER)
MFRTYPMDL(*HP6)
INTNETADR(’192.168.1.1′)

You can add a workstation customizing object if you need to change the EOL character as well depending on your printer…
