Before you jump headlong into a WSCST solution, play around with how you
define the printer to the AS/400.  I do NOT know printer model numbers well
enough to determine whether a 3812 is a line printer or not, but if it is,
rotation will not work.

Because you've apparently got this working already on another printer, I'll
presume you have what follows, but just in case:  I have duplicated the
QPSUPRTF & QSYSPRT printer files in my own library that sits on top of the
system library list and changed them as follows to be able to print 132-across
in portrait mode.  Personally I find this much easier to read than landscape,
plus you get 24 more lines printed on a page.

PAGESIZE(88 132 *ROWCOL)
LPI(8)
CPI(16.7)
OVRFLW(84)
PAGRTT(*AUTO)

I have a IBM laser, that is *IPDS.  When a print file that
is defined as PAGRTT = *COR or *DEVD, the document will print
in Portrait if narrow enough.

I have now a HP4050 printer with a jet-direct card, and I am
trying to create a 3812 *LAN device, and the rotation is not
working as on the IBM Laser (twinax attached.)

Does anyone have a WSCST file that may help me perform this??

Thank You
