Tally T6212
We have obtained a Tally T6212 network printer with *IPDS option to replace an IBM 6400 twinax printer. I have tried many different settings: CLASS(*LAN) TYPE(*IPDS) - Remote outq and virtual printer, but to no avail. The standard SCS output is printed, but an *IPDS printfile is either printed with rubbish characters or directly put in HOLD status. What definitions do I need to get this working correctly?
