Have you tried a telnet to the printer port 9100 from your PC? From a command prompt (DOS prompt) type:

telnet 9100

What happens? If the printer is accepting connections, it'll connect, but you'll get a blank screen. If not, you should get an error message telling you it can't connect. That would give you a clue that port 9100 (the JetDirect/PJL/Raw printer port) is not available. If that's the case, you'll want to turn on jetDirect port 9100 in the printer config (if possible) or use a different printing protocol.

If it does connect, then something is wrong in your IBM i devd. Or perhaps in the network itself.

Bit by bit, try testing each portion until you determine where the problem is.

Sorry. Forgot to mention in my previous reply that the protocol that the
Windows definition is using is "Raw". Not sure what that means, but there
it is.
