Go to WWW-912.IBM.COM ( yes that is a dash not a dot )
In the search box near the top right of that screen type in
" support ascii printers monarch "
when the search returns a list of hits go to the Knowledge Base and you
will find a hit like "Support for ASCII Printer from Monarch" or what ever the Manufacture
you specified in the search arg. There will be a large amount of info available
but the #1 thing I look to see is how my printer is supported. LPD PJL etc.

If it says "Windows Only" then get a different printer, other wise follow the instructions
for the type of support . PJL is the best if possible.

Hope this helps

I wish to understand why going to a new remote warehouse and trying to connect simple forms printers say the IBM 6704, and a Monarch Label printers is such an ordeal. For example with an HP I create an outq, that is IP Netadr, and I'm done. With the other printers I have to guess. Should I also create a Device? Why, what type? Should I check the printers config parameters? OK, what am I missing in this. Is it supposed to be an art form, or do I lack the intelligence for this type of assignment?

Thanks, Frank
