Connecting Canon IR 550 or 5000 to iSeries V5R2

I have added the IP address to host tabel and created outq, but nothing prints. Spoolfile sits in SND status. Any help would be very much appreciated. Outq descrtipion is as follows: Status: Writer active: Y Writer name(s) if active: FAUSX005 Output queue held: N Writers to autostart: 1 Display any file: *YES Job separators: 0 Operator controlled: *YES Order of files on queue: *FIFO Data queue: *NONE Authority to check: *DTAAUT Remote system: FAUSX005 Remote printer queue: TEXT Queue for writer messages: *LIBL/QSYSOPR Connection type: *IP Destination type: *OTHER Host print transform: *NO User data transform: TSPRWPR Library: PAGRANGE Manufacturer type and model: *HP4 Workstation customizing object: *NONE Image configuration: *NONE Destination options: *NONE Print separator page: *NO User defined option: *NONE User driver program: *NONE Spooled file ASP: *SYSTEM

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


I already connected some Canon printers such as IR3220/3320 and there is some additional configuration to make on the printer side.

For printing with using a DEVD, the TCPIP setting of the printer should be set as ‘Bidirectional’, but I’m afraid this option is not available on 5xxx series.

I think you have to use a remote outq.

You should contact your Canon support, they have some documents explaining how to connect iR printer to iSeries

    What about your device configuration? I have one, configured as a IPDS printer. You have to make sure it is using PORT 5001 in you config.

    You need to make sure that you have a compatible remote printer queue for your printer. The Remote system should be *INTNETADR. Take a look at the IBM website. They should have some info on this...

    The "Remote system" does not need to be *INTNETADR. Where did that idea come from. In fact, things can much easier if it's not *INTNETADR but instead the proper host name. If no DNS is available to serve DNS queries, the system hosts table can be used. As for the original question, it's nice to see how the *OUTQ is defined, but there's nothing shown about the printer. In particular first, what port is the printer listening on? Tom
