Re: Best way to configure a LAN printer



fixed

When production system was the i, I found that using a DEVD was more
reliable. We had a bunch of Lexmark printers. Most also had scanner heads
and other attachments. When configured as remote output queues, we had
unpredictable data loss. The printers did not have internal storage, so
the print stream just disappeared. Things got a bit ugly, as orders for
patient care disappeared. Not a good thing at a hospital. Most printer
DEVDs were created to use PJL. But, that was related to what the printer
supported.

I would be interesting in hearing what your preferred way to configure a
LAN attached printer so it can be used from a power system running IBM i
7.1. I believe the three options I have seen are RMTOUTQ, PJL, and SNMP. We
do all RMTOUTQ but it has been at least 3-4 years since we last considered
alternatives.

Thanks for any feedback
