How have you configured the *LAN device description??

A *LAN 3812 PJL device description is not going to work.

A *LAN 3812 SNMP device description is a long shot as it requires
support from the print server and the printer itself.

Best chance is IPP, have you followed these instructions?

Note that The IBM technotes say that neither SNMP, or IPP work with
this printer....but I'd try IPP anyway as I've found that it tends to
work if the print server is external and supports it; which the
JetDirect does.

Remote outq is always my last choice, one other option few are aware
of is the *LEXLINK protocol. But that does require a Lexmark Print
Server and I'm not sure if the current Lexmark print servers support
it or not. But at a prior place of employement, I set up a dot matrix
printer using *LEXLINK and 12 years later there's never been an issue.

I've got the IBM printer definition page open in front of me, and have
created a device description for one of these (*LAN), but it's attached to a
HP Jet Direct box.

Does anybody have one of these configured, and can you let me know what
device type parms to use? I can get to the point of starting the writer, but
then it dies.
