We've done that.
The key is to make sure that the printer file is compiled to your iSeries
as an AFPDS file.
CRTPRTF DEVTYPE(*AFPDS)

In the past you needed to use IPDS, but if you compile the file using
AFPDS you won't need any specific hardware to be installed in the printer.

I can't really answer the question about printer servers directly. We
configure our printers to the i using remote outq and IP address. As far
as I know we refer to the same IP address from the printer server as well,
but I don't work with the infrastructure that much, so it may be possible
to do it differently.

[BPCS-L] Barcode printing from AS/400






Hi All

I want to generate barcodes on the AS/400 with the barcode keyword on the
DDS and print it to a printer.

Did anybody do this and what are the requirements - eg. Must the printer
be connected to the AS/400 or can it be connected via a printer server?

Anything I should be aware of ?

We are on an I7 with 6.1.1.

Thanks

Jan
