    Hi,

    We are trialing the S30 with the built in emulation,(5250 in this case AS/400) and I need to know how to setup a printer for screen printing.

    From the File | Print Setup menu I see you can choose a type of printer, ie. PCL and Network, which it is, but I am not too sure about the Net Path parameter. I don’t think it is UNC and I am guessing it isn’t just the printer name or IP address of the printer. So what do I enter here?

    And also, is this printer setting completely separate from any of the printer entries that can be setup from the Control Panel?

    The screen print is different to the in built printers, if you have a locally attached printer use the PCL option. If you want to use a network printer from the device use the network option.

    The Jetcert Print addon provides USB print support (via LPT2) and printing from IE, the standard printer applet will creat printers in a ICA/RDP session.

    The trick with CE is that there in no print subsystem as there is in Windows XP. When you define a print it simply passes the information from the server right to the port without proccessing (spooling) it.

    If this is not clear have a look at the wyse support site or post back with the type of printer you would like to set up,

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Hi Rob,

    I think I need a bit more help on this. I have read stuff but can’t seem to find what I am looking for.

    The printers are all network and are PCL5/6. Normally HP LJ 4000 series or 2400 series.

    I just need to set this up in PowerTerm so the users can do screen prints to the network printers.

    Thanks

    Nathan

    Hi,

    Here is one way to do it. I was using the Erricom terminal Emulator with an AS400 connection. From the file/Print Setup menu I selected a HP network printer with a network path off \printsvr1HPLaserJet4. I used generic Monocrome LaserJet as the driver. For network printing the Erricom may call on the JetCert or LPR printing option. You may have to set these up if you with to print via LPR or IPP rather than Microsoft SMB.

    Note, if you have the incorrect print language set up the job may print but no output from the printer is present. If you still cant print can you post the exact setup and any error mesages you are getting?

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Hi Rob,

    Got it. Added a printer to JET in the Control Panel and then had an IPP printer listed in the Printer Setup option in the terminal software.

    Thanks for your help.
