    Do you mean create a PRTF, an OUTQ, or a WTR?

    So we are not answering a homework question, can you give us more information? What exactly are you trying to accomplish? What have you done so far.

    Thanks

    Waiting for your response.

    :) Thanks for your kind reply.

    I need to configure printer devise on as400 and make it IPDS PRINTER.

    Because I try to use command CRTDEVPRT to configure an IPDS printer and I give it a name put the spool file give me a hold status every time.

    Opt  File        User        User Data   Sts   Pages   Copies  Form Type   Pty
       EQRPTA4S    UBEADM                  HLD       1*      1   *STD         5

    And it never printed.

    Thanks!

    Look at the joblog for the WTR. It will give you more information more information on the issue. You will probably find out that when you created the DEVD, you have a parameter error.

    First, is the printer capable of IPDS?

    Yeah, it's tagged "OS/400" and "System i" even though you can't run OS/400 on System i. (That might be more of a problem with available tags, but we can't tell.)

    Check the status of the created device. It must be VARY On (WRKCFGSTS).
    Tip: do not use hard coded IP's in your device descriptions : use the iSeries Host table (CFGTCP ==> option 10). That will help a great deal in case IP adresses need to be changed.

    Messam, you'd be best served by pulling down the AS400 Workstation Customization Object Library for Xerox Products. It contains work station customizing objects for most every Xerox printer.

    I see Xerox 5655s in IBM documents as potentially having some kind of IPDS capability, but it's always mentioned as "IPDS(via third-party transforms)". Do you have the "third-party transforms", whatever those are?
