I tried this:

To change HP8620 outq to use Tray 2

On this web page:
https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/pre-built-workstatio
n-customizing-objects-wscsts-ibm-system-i-remote-tech
nical-support

CRTSAVF FILE(QGPL/QWSCST)
TEXT('Pre-Built WSCST Objects from iSeries
Support')

Download this file:

t/nas/nastech.nsf/0/1ce5e7f5d2a42b0f85257bc10064ed5

upload it to IBMi using FTP
Instructions on how are on the web page.

To verify that the file has been uploaded successfully:
DSPSAVF FILE(QGPL/QWSCST)

RSTOBJ OBJ(*ALL) SAVLIB(QGPL) DEV(*SAVF)
OBJTYPE(*ALL)
SAVF(QGPL/QWSCST)

To see and change the source files:

WRKMBRPDM FILE(QGPL/QWSCSTSRC) MBR(*ALL)
MBRTYPE(*ALL)

I found this source file:
QWSCSTSRC PCL5AUTOSL WSCST PCL5 with modified
CPICOR and auto-select tray

I found this web page that explains how to change the
PCL code on Drawer 1 to the code that Drawer 2 uses.
https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/controlling-and-tro
ubleshooting-drawer-selection-wscst

I changed this code:
DRAWER=DRAWER1
DATA ='1B266C3148'X. --> '1B266C3548'X.
This was in for Drawer 1 ^ I changed it to this ^ which
was in Drawer 2

After the source for PCL5AUTOSL is changed I found this
web page:
https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/creating-workstatio
n-customizing-object-simplified

That explains how to create a new WSCST file:

To Create the WSCST:
CRTWSCST WSCST(QGPL/PCL5AUTOSL)
SRCMBR(*WSCST)
TEXT(*SRCMBRTXT)
SRCFILE(QGPL/QWSCSTSRC)

Then I recreated the OUTQ:
CRTOUTQ OUTQ(QUSRSYS/&DEVNAME)
RMTSYS(*INTNETADR) +
RMTPRTQ(RAW) AUTOSTRWTR(1)
CNNTYPE(*IP) +
DESTTYPE(*OTHER) TRANSFORM(*YES) +
MFRTYPMDL(*HP5) WSCST(PCL5AUTOSL) +
INTNETADR('192.168.168.27') DESTOPT(XAIX)
+
SEPPAGE(*NO)

Then I put a splf in the outq.

It did print in Landscape. It printed from Tray 1. I
wanted it to print from Tray 2

Does anyone know what I did wrong?

Thank you,

Gary Kuznitz

commented about Re: How to configure an HP printer on
my LAN:

That printer does not seem to support PJL which is what you have
configured.

See https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/644553

I think you will need to configure for LPR using a remote writer.

This may assist in creating the output queue for the remote writer.

I would like to print from a P9 V7r4 to an HP8620 printer
on my network.

I've tried:
CRTDEVPRT DEVD(&DEVNAME) DEVCLS(*LAN)
TYPE(3812) +
MODEL(1) LANATTACH(*IP) PORT(9100) +
ATTACH(*DIRECT) ONLINE(*YES) FONT(011 +
*NONE) FORMFEED(*AUTOCUT) +
SEPDRAWER(*FILE) PRTERRMSG(*INQ) +
MSGQ(*CTLD) ACTTMR(170)
INACTTMR(*SEC15) +
LINESPEED(19200) WORDLEN(8)
PARITY(*NONE) +
STOPBITS(1) TRANSFORM(*YES) +
MFRTYPMDL(*HP5SI) PPRSRC1(*LETTER) +
PPRSRC2(*LETTER) ENVELOPE(*NUMBER10) +
ASCII899(*NO) IMGCFG(*NONE) +
CHRID(*SYSVAL) +
RMTLOCNAME('192.168.168.27') +
USRDFNOPT(*IBMSHRCNN) +
SYSDRVPGM(*IBMSNMPDRV)
PUBLISHINF(*DUPLEX +
*COLOR *UNKNOWN *UNKNOWN *BLANK
*UNKNOWN) +
TEXT('HP8620 ')

Then I WRKWTR Go to outq press 2 to change
enter options below:
CRTOUTQ OUTQ(QUSRSYS/HP86202)
RMTSYS(*INTNETADR) +
RMTPRTQ(PASS) AUTOSTRWTR(1)
CNNTYPE(*IP) +
DESTTYPE(*OTHER) MFRTYPMDL(*HP4) +
INTNETADR('192.168.168.27') SEPPAGE(*NO)

I'm getting an error saying:

Look at the printer to determine the cause of the

Does anyone know how to configure an HP inkjet printer?

Thanks,
