That apparently implies a desire to establish a PC5250 workstation
_printer_ emulation session; i.e. beyond just _display_ session(s)? Is
there any reason not to just configure a Printer Device [or an Output
Queue that defines use with LPR] for that HP device? Perhaps because
that printer is not available on the network?
I can get it to print, but it completely ignores font, LPI, CPI,
page size, etc.
I seem to recall having to define somehow, presumably by navigating
the PComm emulator session menu, an association with the emulated
printer session, to a local Windows printer using the Printer Driver for
I'm sure it's because I haven't chosen the proper device type or
workstation customizing object, but I'm pulling my hair out trying
to figure it out.
I do not recall there was much choice for device type, but I seem to
recall a way to set the LPI, CPI, and font from the emulator. The best
flexibility is IMO, configuring the DEVD and\or OUTQ outside the
emulator, optionally with a WSCST.
If indeed trying to use an emulated printer session, then look for a
copy of the document named pc5250ref.pdf which IIRC is the documentation
for the PC5250 emulator [¿aka Personal Communications/400 (PC/400) ?].
That doc would presumably give some direction, but only for the
workstation printer emulation; if the printer can be used on the network
[optionally via LPR], then that is IMO the better option.
