First you should upgrade to a supported iSeries Access version:
32-bit and 64-bit editions Vista Home Premium and Home Basic editions are not supported. The other editions are supported with:
V6R1M0 (5761-XE1 System i Access for Windows)
V5R4M0 (5722-XE1 iSeries Access for Windows) with service pack PTF SI25949 or later
PC5250 requires SI27741 or later
Next check to see if you missed anything in the Printer Session Setup:
PC Connected Printers – Parallel/Serial/USB
Use an iSeries Access Printer session.
Parallel and Serial usually work just fine. USB does not tend to work as well.
The printer session will automatically create a Print Device and an OUTQ on the system.
Only one session is needed per printer. As long as the session is active others can print there too by sending spool files to the device or OUTQ.
Can have multiple printer sessions on a PC. One for each printer.
Session must be active for printing to work.
iSeries Access must be installed on the PC first in order to create a printer session.
Choosing a full installation will ensure you load the software to allow a print session.
Installing iSeries Access onto the PC from the system will ensure the client and server versions will be at the same level. The installation path looks like this.
Replace “systemname” with your system name or IP address in the path above to install.
After iSeries Access is installed configure the printer session.
In Windows Click Start/Programs/IBM iSeries Access for Windows/Emulator/Start or Configure Session. Click New Session.
Leave Specify workstation ID selected and type in a name for the printer in the field below. Select Printer and click the Setup button.
Select Transform Print data to ASCII on iSeries.
Select the Printer make and model from the drop down box.
Use this link if your make and model is not shown: MFRTYPMDL
If you don’t see the exact make and model you’ll have to try ones that sound like they might work for your printer.
Click OK/OK and your session should start.
On the new printer session click File/Printer Setup and select you Windows printer driver. Click OK.
On the new printer session click File/Save and save it with the same name you used for “Specify workstation ID” field.
Copy the new icon to your startup folder and the printer session will start whenever you boot the PC. Also make a copy of the icon to the desktop for quick access.
Now you can direct spool files to the new device or OUTQ
If you created the printer as a LAN printer this is what you should change in your description (CHGDEVPRT):
MFRTYPMDL = *HP5
WSCST = HP4 (check on your system in which library it is)
SYSDRVPGM = *HPPJLDRV
Check this out, it might work right for you!
