Bill,

Thanks. I tried it with both *HP4000 and *HP5 with the same baffling
results. For lack of anything else to blame it on (other than my own
inadequacies which are well documented) I'm leaning towards the print server
box's configuration.

We bought this printer from my previous employer when he closed his doors.
I installed the same CL here that we used there to create the device
description. But the previous employer was running V5R4 while we're on V5R1
here. On the other hand at the old employer we ran it on V4R4 and then V5R1
on a 720 (washing machine).

But, then, just getting a Twinax printer to work on this network was a
challenge. I've had two people (other than the guy who set it up) look at
the network. Both were baffled. The "network" guy (the owner's son) always
says it's an AS/400 issue.

Jerry,
I have a 4050 connected and working with:
Manufacturer type and model . . . . . : *HP4000

If V5R1 has the *hp4000 driver you might try that.

A little more experimenting (since I obviously don't know what I'm doing
I'm
kinda limited to experimentation-mode).

I deleted the device description which, apparently, also deleted the
output
queue. Recreated the device description (using the CL below). After
starting the writer, WRKCFGSTS showed status of Active/Writer. Test
print
did *not* print (Status = RDY).

Next, I tried to print a test page from both TextPad and NotePad. Both
failed to print. Canceled them from the PC's writer (or whatever it
is).

However, WORD and Excel documents print. But the writer on the System i
goes to END status and WRKCFGSTS simply shows Varied On. Test pages
from
TextPad and NotePad will now print.

I don't know what it's telling me, but I see this error six [6] times in
the
job logs, all with the same time stamp.

I double-checked the IP address (10.1.10.199) and port (9100) through
the

Nice documentation!

At that point, I would do WRKJOB (writername), and view the joblog for
any
of the ended jobs. Something in there should stand out for you.

This file is not associated with a started printer.

When I then use WRKWTR CR's status is END, whereas earlier it was STR.
So I
started it.

Then the Work with printing status shows (Status is pending).

While typing parts of this message, the writer's status went to END.



In the past all I have ever had to do was create a device description.
The
output queue mysteriously (to me, anyway) gets created and everything
(usually) works fine (with a little fine tuning on some rare
occasions).



Thanks.
