PRODUCT NAME:
HP SNA Printer Emulator
for OpenVMS, Version 1.6
SPD 26.70.11
This SPD describes HP SNA Printer Emulator for OpenVMS, which is available for the OpenVMS I64, OpenVMS Alpha and OpenVMS VAX platforms. All information applies to all platforms unless otherwise indicated.
In an actual IBM 3287 environment, data transfer is one
way (from host to printer) and generates hard copy. The
PrE Access software will allow OpenVMS users to direct
the received output either to be printed via the OpenVMS Print Symbiont or spooled to a disk file.
DESCRIPTION
HP SNA Printer Emulator for OpenVMS (PrE) is an
OpenVMS layered software product that allows suitably
configured OpenVMS systems to receive printable data
from IBM host-based applications. These applications
will originally have been developed to produce output for
an IBM 3287 printer in system mode that is connected to
an IBM 3274 cluster controller in a Systems Network Architecture (SNA) networking environment. Access from
the IBM system to OpenVMS systems is via one of the
following SNA servers or gateways:
TCP/IP or DECnet Connections
• HP SNA Peer Server
• HP SNA Domain Gateway
• HP SNA Access Server for Windows NT®
• HP SNA Server for OpenVMS Alpha, a layered product that supports local access as well as TCP/IP and
DECnet clients
DECnet Only Connections
• HP DECnet SNA Gateway for Synchronous Transport
• HP DECnet SNA Gateway for Channel Transport
• HP SNA Server for OpenVMS VAX, an OpenVMS
VAX layered product that supports local access as
well as remote DECnet clients

HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
Processors Supported
• PrE supports the 3287 printer Program Attention
(PA1 and PA2) keys and the CANCEL PRINT key
using commands entered at the user interface.
For information about supported processors, refer to
the OpenVMS Operating System for I64, Alpha and
VAX Software Product Description (SPD 82.35.xx and

• VAX-11/785
• PrE supports a maximum of 250 sessions simultaneously.
• VAX-11/788
• PrE supports the ability to submit a print job for another user. The print job will run exactly as if that
user submitted the request. Accounting information
is logged to that user’s account. The user name
string can be 1 to 12 characters in length and should
be a valid user name on the system.
