We have an HP OfficeJet 7780 all-in-one that has been set up as a network printer for quite a while. We have been printing to it via Windows from several PCs with no problem. I am trying to set it up as a LAN printer on our AS400 (V6R1) with no luck. I have used IBM's suggested model - *HP520 - along with many other different models. I have tried setting Host Print Transform to *yes & *no. I have tried setting the System Driver Program to *ibmpjldrv, *hppjldrv, *ibmsnmpdrv & *ibmippdrv. When I have the settings set up in a way I would expect it to work (using ibmpjldrv with model as hp520, hp1100 or something similar), as soon as I release a report the writer ends. We have other model all-in-one printers hooked to other AS400s as LAN printers & they work using various different settings. I have tried using any of those settings to no avail. Does anybody have any thoughts or any experience with this?

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

we had somewhat of a similiar problem with our brand new HP printer. I contacted IBM who suggested following:

set FORM FEED to *AUTOCUT
set HOST PRINT TRANSFORM to *YES
set MFG TYPE/MODEL to RICOHAP900 (yes, Ricoh model)
set USER DEFINED OBJECT to *NONE
blank out LIBRARY
keep SYSTEM DRIVER PROGRAM to *HPPJLDRV

works like magic

    I believe your problem is base on that HP OfficeJet 7780 appears to be a host based printer. You need to read about host based printers and the problems associated with them.

    I wound up having to set it up as a remote outq instead of a printer device. This worked right away for me.
