Going forward, forget the HP printers and go with the Xerox Work Centre
printers. Xerox publishes a toolkit that allows you to restore their library
to your system. It contains everything you need to configure the printers as
native to the IBM i using the Xerox drivers. You can even modify the drivers
to use different paper drawers as needed. There is a command (CRTXWSC) that
is used to compile your mods to the drivers, and a command (CRTXDEVPRT) that
is used to create the device descriptions. The best thing is that Xerox
provides this library for free, and they provide periodic updates when new
printers are released.

Google xerox xtools library.

Subject: Re: How to configure an HP printer on my LAN

After a lot of testing, and trial and error I finally found the correct
combination that does print in landscape and does print to Tray 2.

CRTOUTQ OUTQ(QUSRSYS/&DEVNAME)
RMTSYS(*INTNETADR) +
RMTPRTQ(HP5P) AUTOSTRWTR(1)
CNNTYPE(*IP) +
DESTTYPE(*OTHER) TRANSFORM(*YES) +
MFRTYPMDL(*HP5000) WSCST(*NONE) +
INTNETADR('192.168.168.27') DESTOPT('xaix +
xautoq') SEPPAGE(*NO) AUTCHK(*DTAAUT)

The only drawback to using this printer this way is that the first page
prints first. Which means the pages are in the wrong order. Normally the
first page prints last.

Thank you all for your help.

<midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>) commented about Re: How to configure an HP
printer on my LAN:

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.


Don

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,

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.

Does anyone know how to configure an HP inkjet printer?
