Subject: RE: Host-Based Printer

Would that be necessary if the printer was connected to a PC? I thought
I could just get a printer that's not host-based and is supported by
host print transform on the System i. I guess I could leave the
host-based printer in place and force the person to print all of their
System i reports to the high volume networked printer on the other side
of their cube, but that would mean they have to get up and walk 5 steps.
P.S. Did you mean to say DANGER WILL ROBINSON :)


In running Linux systems (various) that need to write to an HP Color
Laser 6200n, we had to write a special script for the W/2K Hosting
computer to handling the incoming print stream so it converted to the
GDI output the printer required. We have since found a third party that
has a driver to do the GDI work on the Linux systems (SuSE 10.3 32 & 64
bit installs) so that the printer is now IP connected and has become
truly a NETWORK printer (No, the HP hplip and other "GDI" support did
not work).

And yes, Will Rogers was stuck in my head and I could not get myself
to... Long week, weekend was definitely needed.
