Hi Im working with an AS/400 system that provides multiple printing

*First problem: I cannot connect to the PRTMVC1.

Im using the same configuration I use for other queues but I can't
establish connection. Is there a way to enable logging on lp5250d to
find out what's going on with the handshaking?

yes.  use the tracefile option:

lp5250d tracefile=trace.log <sessionname>

*Second problem: Paper Size.

It seems that paper size of documents printed on PRTMVC1 are bigger than
the rest, so moving documents from this queue to another one results in
this error:

        Le type d'unit{ du fichier n'est pas accept{ par l'unit{.

I don't speak french but I think it's a paper size problem.

Searching in your archives I found this post, clearly the same problem
that Im having now:


I don't understand how to change parameters on my .tn5250rc to solve
this situation, it will be very nice if you can help me on that.

It looks like you need to use a CPI of 15 or greater. From that same achive message:

"So to overcome you current issue, you should specify a
CPI value of 15 CPI or greater (ex. 16.7 or 20) in
your printer file in order to print the 198 columns
via lpd5250."
