hello everybody
 
i'd just like to know a few things printer sessions-related
 
my question is if the data goes right from the tn5250 printer session to the printer of if they have to pass through lpr.
I know that there is no problem with a normal printer session but we once tried to config a win3.11 to print to a Zebra printer (for labels) and all i got is a Dali's picture from the output; never tried with one of our Printronix (matricial). All beacuse the data passes via the win3.11 printer manager (and there's no such drivers for that system).
So, with a DOS system it's different because the drivers used come from a .dat file that the CA session reads for output.
And, as long as there'll be no support for SNA we want to pass our old DOS-SNA machines to TCP/IP and NT's Not The_solution so i wondered if a thing like that could be done with tn5250 just before laying hands on the config.
 
Thanks for the advice,
 
Pedro Mullor.
