Zebra Z4M
Dear all, I need help setting up a configuration on an AS400 for a Zebra Z4M printer physically located on another site. I can ping it from my AS400 but when I do WRKWTR to check spool status everything I send stays in PND. The printer light flashes so it detects the print request but nothing comes out. Any idea please?

    Hi Tpinky Thanks for your answer. It is both nice and a little disconcerting. I don't know about the TLABARCODE part for example. Here is some extra info in case you can enlighten me further, you or anybody else who may have an idea. Printer currently connected on wifi and locate on another site. I can still ping it, here is the configuration created by CRTDEVPRT (for info I don't know how to configure a remote outq).

    At another job we used Zebra printers.  Very reliable.
    The printer was configured as the most basic, character-based IBM printer - I think that was an IBM 3812 at the time.
    Are you sending it ZPL codes to control your label?
    Remember that these printers just keep adding the data to an internal representation of the label.  Then, when the end-of-label character is sent, as defined by ZPL, the label is printed.
    We used a standard spool file with only one record of 80 characters.  Record length is not important but recommend at least 80 characters so that you can easily read when your program is sending to the printer.
