Re: Sending PJL comands



fixed

David,

Can you show us the printer definition in the CRTOUTQ command?
What mfgtypmdl ?
What file definition used to create the WSCST? QWPDEFAULT?
What's the real model # of this printer?

Since you said the pjl column in IBM Support doc was ? then it
should have one of the HP Printer data streams as it's
configuration (in the printer control panel, not one of Toshiba's
proprietary data streams or postscript)?

Toshiba Printers
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1019507

This doc has info on WSCST changes over last couple releases (and it
is "weird" displaying in IE8 running some jscript that never ends)
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1019698

and this doc is Output Bin Selection for PCL5-type printers

Subject: Sending PJL comands


It's been a while since I've gotten "down and dirty" with printers, but
I did have a couple questions.



We have several Toshiba printers that I've been trying to change the
outbin for. Currently they are set up as rmtoutq's.



I tried using WSCST and the Outbintble option to change all the outbin
comands to 0,1,2,3 but nothing happened. I even used wordpad to print
out a test to a file to look for the right Hex code but didn't even see
any that started with "1b26" which is what the default WSCST had for
outbin.



I haven't found the hex codes for the Toshiba, so I thought I might try
PJL (the IBM guide has "?" for PJL but I thought it might work). I know
I would have to set up a PJL device, but my question is how do I then
send the PJL commands to the printer or better yet set the device to
always use outbin 1 (for example) based on PJL.



Thanks in advance for the help.
