The printer you are trying to configure does not support PJL (Printer Job
Language) and therefore needs to be configured as a remote writer using
LPR

LPR is, from my understanding, a one way request to send a print job to
the printer.

I have found that trying to configure advanced functions like the required
tray and finishing option most difficult with LPR configurations.

The problem is that the printer is not understanding the request.

You are using the WSCST PCL5AUTOSL

You can retrieve this definition using

RTVWSCST DEVTYPE(*TRANSFORM)
MFRTYPMDL(PCL5AUTOSL)
SRCMBR(PCL5AUTOSL)
SRCFILE(YOURLIB/QTXTSRC)

Next you need to find the technical manual for your printer. I have found
this to be difficult at times ... good luck.

Then in the manual for the printer you will need to find the command to
set the drawer and compare that to the command in the file you retrieved
using the RTVWSCST and set the command to match the printer's
requirements. (It may not even exist)

Here is an example of the drawer select in a WSCST; (This is generic and
NOT the WSCST from the one you are using.)

:DWRSLT
DRAWER=PAPER
DATA ='1B266C3248'X.
:DWRSLT
DRAWER=ENVELOPE
DATA ='1B266C3368314F'X.
:DWRSLT
DRAWER=DRAWER1
DATA ='1B266C3148'X.
:DWRSLT
DRAWER=DRAWER2
DATA ='1B266C3448'X.

The DATA is the command being sent to the printer and this MUST match what
your printer requires.

Then once you have made the changes use the CRTWSCST command to create a
new WSCST and test with that.


Having said all that I would recommend investigating the IBMi support for
the printer before purchasing and obtaining a printer that supports PJL
which will make your life much easier to set up these types of functions.


Hope this helps a little.

Thank you for the reply...

I have tried MFRETYPMOD set to *HP520. Which is what
the link at:
https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/644553

Recommends.

I still can't get it to print from tray 2.

CRTOUTQ OUTQ(QUSRSYS/&DEVNAME)
RMTSYS(*INTNETADR) +
RMTPRTQ(RAW) AUTOSTRWTR(1)
CNNTYPE(*IP) +
DESTTYPE(*OTHER) TRANSFORM(*YES) +
MFRTYPMDL(*HP520) WSCST(PCL5AUTOSL) +
INTNETADR('192.168.168.27') DESTOPT(XAIX)
+
SEPPAGE(*NO)

I was hoping someone on the list actually had a similar
printer with this working.

Thanks,

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

May I add my 2 cents to this thread?
I dealt with this type of issue for several years at a shop I was at.
There
were many type's of IP printers.
What was found was usually the MFRTYPMOD was not set correctly AND we
had to
have a tech on site
With the physical printer(s) at times to assure the MAC address was
attached
to the right IP as well.
Sometimes we set that up ahead of time with BlueCat IPAM (IP Asset Mgmt)
tool.

As you can see from the "Information on Printers from HP" on this model,
the
MFRETYPMOD
Should be either *LEXOPTRAT or *HP520.

The config below shows *HP5SI.

Perhaps that'll help a bit.

Have you tried the MFRTYPMDLspecified by IBM for that model?

Does anyone know how to configure an HP inkjet printer?
