Using Canon Multi-function printers

pts.

We have Canon IR1610 and IR1620 printers which we are attempting to set up as IP printers. The problem we have appears to be that the standard HP setup that we use is not recognised by these printers when the data stream arrives. Is there a MFRTYPMDL that I can use to get around this or is there some other way?

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

Why are you using an HP setup at all? Unless a given manufacturer claims compatability or compliance with another manufacturer’s equipment or standards, I would expect that to fail.

Can you provide more details on what you’re trying to accomplish with this setup?

    According to IBM's website at http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/slkbase.nsf/1ac66549a21402188625680b0002037e/e9bd60440bf30f3c862569c100795cad?OpenDocument&Highlight=0,Canon you can set up the Canon 1610 as an HP4. The document doesn't include the 1620, but IBM may just not have tested it yet on an iSeries. You could also go to http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/slkbase.nsf/$$Search?openform and search for Canon and you will find more documents that the one from the link above.

    We were advised by a local IBM fellow to set it up as HP4 but but this seems to hang the printer. We have managed to track down some advice from Canon themselves - they suggested setting the printer up as a a generic A4 printer and sent us a WSCST object which correctly transforms the data stream for the MFP. The downside is that it prints a 'watermark' thru the middle and is a retail object! Thanks for your input.
