AS/400 and iSeries LAN Printing Using the Printer

Standard Network Port or MarkNet Internal Print

Server

With the optional Card for IPDS/SCS/TNe and a LAN print server installed, the printer can receive, process, and print AFP/IPDS print jobs over TCP/IP from the following IBM software:

• PSF/400 V3R1-R3, V3R6-R7, V4R1-R5, V5R1-R4, or greater

The information below will lead you through the steps for setting up the AS/400, or iSeries, and the printer to print IPDS jobs over a LAN. The printer must be configured with a Standard Network port or MarkNet internal

LAN print server.

Refer to the IPDS User’s Guide for detailed instructions on using the control panel to select and change option settings.

Steps

The following steps must be completed to begin printing IPDS jobs.

Troubleshooting

Step 1 Choose a Printer Port for Use in the Device Description

Several printer ports are available for receiving IPDS jobs when using the printer Standard Network port or the

MarkNet internal LAN print server. The printer port will be used in one of the following steps.

Port descriptions:

Port 5001 - This is the recommended port selection for receiving IPDS jobs. This port should only be used for receiving IPDS jobs. The printer’s Network Job Timeout and Job Buffering settings are automatically set to the correct settings for receiving IPDS jobs on this port. This port is recommended when a significant performance impact is seen when downloading IPDS resources for each job. With the proper configuration settings on the host and printer, the IPDS resources can be saved in the printer memory while the printer is printing non-IPDS jobs.

Port 9100 - This port can receive PCL, Postscript, or IPDS jobs. In order to print IPDS jobs, the printer’s

Network Job Timeout must be manually set to "0" (or to "Disable") and Job Buffering must be manually set to "OFF". These settings also affect printing of non-IPDS jobs.

How to find the Network Job Timeout Option (which is also known as End-of-Job Timeout) on the control panel: On printers, press MENU and then select Settings > Setup Menu > Timeouts > Network Job

Timeout. On MFPs, touch Menus and then select Settings > General Settings > Timeouts > Network Job

Timeout.

6

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide AS/400 and iSeries LAN Printing Using the Printer Standard Network Port or MarkNet Internal Print Server

How to find Job Buffering on the control panel: Job Buffering is only visible as a menu setting if there is a hard disk installed in the printer. Press MENU or touch Menus and then select Network/Ports > Standard

Network > Job Buffering.

Port 9600 - This port should only be used for receiving IPDS jobs. The printer’s Network Job Timeout setting is automatically set to the correct setting for receiving IPDS jobs on this port. This port is only provided for compatibility with some older printers. Port 5001 is the recommended port for printing IPDS jobs.

Step 2 Create a PSFCFG

Note:

Examples showing parameters displayed on an AS/400 may be different than the parameters displayed on your system. Examples are shown with V5R2 parameters.

Define a PSF configuration object for your printer using

CRTPSFCFG

. The PSFCFG object defined in this step is referenced in the printer device description (

CRTDEVPRT

). More than one printer can use this object.

Save/submit any changes and return to the Ready screen.

7

To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Reports > Network Setup Page. This can be Network Setup Page, Network 1 Setup Page, or

Network 2 Setup Page. Note that the Network Job Timeout is identified as End-of-job Timeout on this report.

Step 5 Configure the Printer’s Network Job Timeout

Note: If you specified Port 5001 or 9600 in the AS/400 device description, you do not need to configure the printer’s Network Job Timeout. Go directly to Step

6 [page 12] .

Important! If you specified Port 9100 in the AS/400 device description, the printer’s Network Job Timeout must be manually disabled by setting it to "0" (or to "Disable"). This is necessary to allow the host’s Release

Timer value or the printer’s IPDS Timeout value to control when print jobs from another protocol, interface,

11

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide AS/400 and iSeries LAN Printing Using the Printer Standard Network Port or MarkNet Internal Print Server

server, or host can be started. It also prevents the printer from ending the IPDS session if communication is delayed between the host and printer.

Additional information on the printer IPDS Timeout value may be found in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

Follow these steps to disable the printer’s Network Job Timeout from the control panel:

1 Navigate to Network Job Timeout.

To find the Network Job Timeout Option on the control panel: On printers, press MENU and then select

Settings > Setup Menu > Timeouts > Network Job Timeout. On MFPs, touch Menus and then select

Settings > General Settings > Timeouts > Network Job Timeout.

2

Select 0. This disables the network job timeout.

3

Save/Submit any changes and return to the Ready screen.

4

To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Reports > Network Setup Page. This can be Network Setup Page, Network 1 Setup Page, or

Network 2 Setup Page. Note that the Network Job Timeout is identified as End-of-job Timeout on this report.

Step 6 Select the IPDS Emulation, Bar Code Size, Host Resolution, and Fax Interrupt

Settings

It is important to select the correct emulation in the printer IPDS MENU before sending IPDS jobs.

Guidelines for Choosing the IPDS Emulation Setting

The IPDS Emulation, the BAR CODE and Host Resolution options are found in the printer control panel under MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION.

1

"Resident" is the default setting. If you are replacing a printer that used a Native Emulation setting,

"Resident" is the recommended emulation.

2

If you are replacing a printer that used a 4028 Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "4028" under BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

3

If you are replacing a printer that used a 43xx Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "43xx" under BAR CODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

4

If you are replacing a printer that used a 3812/3816 Emulation, select the "3812/3816" Emulation. This emulation only accepts 240 dpi resources (fonts, overlays, etc.) from the host and does not support DBCS printing.

On MFPs, you can set the print priority of received faxes. Refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for additional information about Fax Interrupt. This option is found under MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS

MENU > EMULATION.

Refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for information on these options and other IPDS MENU settings to format IPDS jobs.

12

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide AS/400 and iSeries LAN Printing Using the Printer Standard Network Port or MarkNet Internal Print Server

Note 1: If the IPDS code release on an MFP is 3.00-01090 or higher, "Copy Interrupt" is supported: an IPDS job can be interrupted by copy jobs and will resume printing automatically. At lower release levels, intervening copy jobs will be spooled to disk (when available) and be processed after the IPDS job is finished.

Note 2: The supported printers and MFPs do not contain an Advanced Function Common Control Unit

(AFCCU).

Step 7 Verify IPDS Printing

If you have completed the steps above to configure the host and printer, you are ready to print your first IPDS job.

It is assumed that TCP/IP communications is installed and started on the host.

1

Vary ON the device.

VRYCFG CFGOBJ(IPDSPRT) CFGTYPE(*DEV) STATUS(*ON)

2

Start the writer.

STRPRTWTR IPDSPRT

3

Send an IPDS job from your host system.

4

Observe the printer control panel. When the first job data is received, BUSY should be displayed in the

printer control panel. If the job does not print, go to Step 8 Troubleshooting .

5

After the last page of the IPDS job prints, BUSY will remain displayed until the host or printer ends the session. This is controlled by the Release Timer on the host or by the IPDS Timeout on the printer.

6

You may want to refer to the IPDS Emulation User's Guide to determine if other IPDS MENU settings need to be changed.

Step 8 Troubleshooting

If the IPDS job does not print, try the following.

1

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check to be sure the printer is connected to the network. Try to PING the printer.

2

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check all host and printer settings to be sure they are correct.

3

If you receive an IPDS Negative Acknowledgement (NACK) beginning with ’08C1’ indicating that the job is printing outside the printer valid printable area, choose one of the following solutions:

a) Change the Printable Area setting to Physical Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select

Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Printable Area.

b) Change your application to position the text within the printable area. Refer to Printable Area in the

IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for more information.

c) Change the Exception Ctrl setting to Sup Beyond VPA. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Exception Ctrl. The printer will not send a NACK to the host when printing outside the valid printable area.

4

If you receive an IPDS Negative Acknowledgement (NACK) beginning with ’0821’ indicating there are undefined characters in the job, choose one of the following solutions:

a) Change your application to send only valid characters and control codes.

13

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide AS/400 and iSeries LAN Printing Using the Printer Standard Network Port or MarkNet Internal Print Server

b) Change the Exception Ctrl setting to Sup Undef Char. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Exception Ctrl. The printer will not send undefined character NACKs to the host.

5

If the job prints, but some characters are printed incorrectly, you should check the default code page setting.

Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Default

Codepage. On printers, the next step is to select Codepages A-E or Codepages F-K or Codepages L-Z, then select the proper code page from these groups. On MFPs, the complete list of code pages appear beside Default Codepage.

6

If the job prints, but some bar codes print in the wrong size, refer to the Bar Code Size option in the IPDS

User’s Guide for more information. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu >

IPDS MENU > EMULATION > BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

7

Refer to Chapter 10. Printer Messages and Problems on page 54

for additional problem solutions.

8

Once the job prints, refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for information on changing other IPDS MENU settings.

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide AS/400 and iSeries Twinax Printing Using the Adapter for SCS

2.

AS/400 and iSeries Twinax Printing Using the

Adapter for SCS

With the optional Card for IPDS/SCS/TNe and the optional Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS installed, the printer can receive, process, and print AFP/IPDS print jobs over TCP/IP from the following IBM software:

• PSF/400 V3R1-R3, V3R6-R7, V4R1-R5, V5R1-R4, or greater

Some printers do not support the Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS. Refer to “Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS Support” [page 53]

to determine if your printer supports the adapter. Note that no MFPs support Twinax printing.

The information below will lead you through the steps for setting up the AS/400, or iSeries, and the printer to print IPDS jobs over a direct Twinax connection using the optional Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS. Refer to the

IPDS User’s Guide for detailed instructions on using the control panel to select and change option settings.

Steps

The following steps must be completed to begin printing IPDS jobs.

1

Configure the Adapter IPDS and SCS Twinax Addresses

2

Set the Adapter for SCS Twinax Timeout

3

Select the IPDS Emulation, Bar Code Size, Host Resolution, and Fax Interrupt Settings

4

Modify the Auto-created Twinax Device Description or Use CRTDEVPRT to Create a Printer Device Description

5

Verify IPDS Printing

6

Troubleshooting

Step 1 Configure the Adapter IPDS and SCS Twinax Addresses

When the printer has both the "Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe" and the "Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS" installed, it is possible to print IPDS jobs using the IPDS emulation in the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe and SCS jobs using the SCS emulation of the Adapter for SCS.

To use both emulations, when you install and configure the option cards, assign a twinax address for the IPDS device address and a different twinax address for the SCS device address in the Adapter for SCS. This is done using the SCS DEV.ADDR. and IPDS DEV. ADDR. options as shown below. In our examples, we will give address 0 to SCS and address 2 to IPDS.

Important:

If the IPDS device address and the adapter SCS device address are the same, the Adapter SCS device address will be used and the IPDS device address will be ignored. The word DUPLICATE will display in the control panel.

Be certain to set the correct twinax addresses in the Adapter for SCS for both the SCS device address and the IPDS device address before physically connecting your printer to the twinax wiring system. If you were to incorrectly enter the same address used by another device, you would disable that device.

If you do not know your printer's correct address, contact your network administrator.

Step 1A: Configure the Printer Adapter IPDS Device Address - or Disable IPDS Printing

The following options for the Adapter for SCS only appear when the IPDS emulation is detected in the printer.

The IPDS Device Address is used to select the twinax address for the IPDS emulation or to disable the IPDS emulation.

15

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide AS/400 and iSeries Twinax Printing Using the Adapter for SCS

1

From a Ready state, on printers press the MENU button.

2

Use the navigation buttons or icons to scroll to Option Card Menu.

3

On printers, press the Select button .

4

Navigate to SCS MENU 1 (or SCS MENU 2) > IPDS Options > IPDS Dev. Addr.

5

Use the navigation buttons or icons to scroll through the values, which include 0-6 and "Disable". Select the desired value.

Note: If you see the string SCS displayed after one of the numbers, for example "5 SCS", this means that the number - in this example number 5 - has already been set as the SCS Dev. Addr. number.

6

Save/Submit the value and exit to the Ready page.

Step 1B: If you are using the IPDS emulation, set IPDS Buffer Size

IPDS Buffer Size is used to select the size of the data/command buffer used by the Adapter for SCS when receiving data/commands from the twinax host. IPDS Buf. Size appears as an option in the printer panel only if the IPDS Dev. Addr. is enabled (address = 0 - 6).

1

Use the control panel MENU as described above to select Option Card Menu > SCS MENU 1 (or SCS

MENU 2) > IPDS Options > IPDS Buf. Size. Select 256 or 1024.

Note:

256 is the recommended value. The 1024 byte buffer has the fastest transfer rate, but it is not compatible with some older IBM equipment.

2

Save the value and exit to the Ready page.

Step 1C: Configure the Printer Adapter SCS Device Address - or Disable SCS Printing

The SCS Device Address is used to select the twinax device address for the adapter SCS emulation or to disable the adapter SCS emulation.

1

Use the control panel MENU as described above to select Option Card Menu > SCS MENU 1 (or SCS

MENU 2) > SCS Options > SCS Dev. Addr.

2

Use the navigation buttons to scroll through the values, which include 0-6 and "Disable". Select the desired value.

Note: If the IPDS emulation and the adapter SCS emulation are given the same address, the SCS emulation in the Adapter for SCS is used and the IPDS emulation is ignored. The word

DUPLICATE will display in the control panel.

3

Save the value and exit to the Ready page.

Step 2 Set the Adapter for SCS Twinax Timeout

The Twinax Timeout value specifies the amount of time the printer Adapter for SCS will wait before closing the connection to the host and allowing non-IPDS jobs to print. The default is 10 (= 30 seconds). Values equal to or less than 10 give a 30 second timeout; values equal to or more than 11 give a timeout in seconds as specified in the value used.

To change the Twinax Timeout value:

1

Use the control panel MENU as described in Step 1A (page

15 ) to select Option Card Menu > SCS MENU

1 (or SCS MENU 2) > SCS OPTIONS > Twinax Timeout.

16

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide AS/400 and iSeries Twinax Printing Using the Adapter for SCS

2

Use the navigation buttons to scroll the display to the desired value - or use the numeric buttons to enter a value.

3

Save the value and return to the Ready screen.

Note: The Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > IPDS Timeout value is not active when the printer is connected to a host through an Adapter for SCS card. The IPDS timeout is controlled by the

Twinax Timeout value on the Adapter for SCS card.

Additional Information

Please refer to the Adapter for SCS, Coax/Twinax Connection, Installation and User's Guide which came with the adapter for a detailed description of other menu settings which affect job formatting.

Step 3 Select the IPDS Emulation, Bar Code Size, Host Resolution, and Fax Interrupt

Settings

It is important to select the correct emulation in the printer IPDS MENU before sending IPDS jobs.

Guidelines for Choosing the IPDS Emulation Setting

The IPDS Emulation, the BAR CODE and Host Resolution options are found in the printer control panel under MENU > Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION.

1

"Resident" is the default setting. If you are replacing a printer that used a Native Emulation setting,

"Resident" is the recommended emulation.

2

If you are replacing a printer that used a 4028 Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "4028" under BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

3

If you are replacing a printer that used a 43xx Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "43xx" under BAR CODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

4

If you are replacing a printer that used a 3812/3816 Emulation, select the "3812/3816" Emulation. This emulation only accepts 240 dpi resources (fonts, overlays, etc.) from the host and does not support DBCS printing.

Refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for information on these options and other IPDS MENU settings to format IPDS jobs.

Note: The supported printers do not contain an Advanced Function Common Control Unit (AFCCU).

Step 5 Verify IPDS Printing

If you have completed the steps above to configure the host and printer, you are ready to print your first IPDS job.

1

Send an IPDS job from your host system.

2

Observe the printer control panel. When the first job data is received, BUSY should be displayed in the

printer control panel. If the job does not print, go to Step 6 Troubleshooting .

3

After the last page of the IPDS job prints, BUSY will remain displayed until the host or printer ends the session. This is controlled by the Release Timer on the host or by the Twinax Timeout on the Adapter for

SCS.

4

You may want to refer to the IPDS Emulation User's Guide to determine if other IPDS MENU settings need to be changed.

Step 6 Troubleshooting

If the IPDS job does not print, try the following.

1

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check to be sure the printer is connected to the network.

2

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check all host and printer settings to be sure they are correct.

3

If you receive an IPDS Negative Acknowledgement (NACK) beginning with ’08C1’ indicating that the job is printing outside the printer valid printable area, choose one of the following solutions:

a) Change the Printable Area setting to Physical Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select

Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Printable Area.

b) Change your application to position the text within the printable area. Refer to Printable Area in the

IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for more information.

c) Change the Exception Ctrl setting to Sup Beyond VPA. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Exception Ctrl. The printer will not send a NACK to the host when printing outside the valid printable area.

4

If you receive an IPDS Negative Acknowledgement (NACK) beginning with ’0821’ indicating there are undefined characters in the job, choose one of the following solutions:

a) Change your application to send only valid characters and control codes.

b) Change the Exception Ctrl setting to Sup Undef Char. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Exception Ctrl. The printer will not send undefined character NACKs to the host.

20

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide AS/400 and iSeries Twinax Printing Using the Adapter for SCS

5

If the job prints, but some characters are printed incorrectly, you should check the default code page setting.

Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Default

Codepage. On printers, the next step is to select Codepages A-E or Codepages F-K or Codepages L-Z, then select the proper code page from these groups. On MFPs, the complete list of code pages appear beside Default Codepage.

6

If the job prints, but some bar codes print in the wrong size, refer to the Bar Code Size option in the IPDS

User’s Guide for more information. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu >

IPDS MENU > EMULATION > BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

7

Refer to Chapter 10. Printer Messages and Problems on page 54

for additional problem solutions.

8

Once the job prints, refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for information on changing other IPDS MENU settings.

Troubleshooting

Step 1 Choose a Printer Port for Printing IPDS Jobs

Several printer ports are available for receiving IPDS jobs when using the printer Standard Network port or the

MarkNet internal LAN print server. The printer port will be used in one of the following steps.

Port descriptions:

Port 5001 - This is the recommended port selection for receiving IPDS jobs. This port should only be used for receiving IPDS jobs. The printer’s Network Job Timeout and Job Buffering settings are automatically set to the correct settings for receiving IPDS jobs on this port. This port is recommended when a significant performance impact is seen when downloading IPDS resources for each job. With the proper configuration settings on the host and printer, the IPDS resources can be saved in the printer memory while the printer is printing non-IPDS jobs.

Port 9100 - This port can receive PCL, Postscript, or IPDS jobs. In order to print IPDS jobs, the printer’s

Network Job Timeout must be manually set to "0" (or to "Disable") and Job Buffering must be manually set to "OFF". These settings also affect printing of non-IPDS jobs.

How to find the Network Job Timeout Option (which is also known as End-of-Job Timeout) on the control panel: On printers, press MENU and then select Settings > Setup Menu > Timeouts > Network Job

Timeout. On MFPs, touch Menus and then select Settings > General Settings > Timeouts > Network Job

Timeout.

How to find Job Buffering on the control panel: Job Buffering is only visible as a menu setting if there is a hard disk installed in the printer. Press MENU or touch Menus and then select Network/Ports > Standard

Network > Job Buffering.

Port 9600 - This port should only be used for receiving IPDS jobs. The printer’s Network Job Timeout setting is automatically set to the correct setting for receiving IPDS jobs on this port. This port is only provided for compatibility with some older printers. Port 5001 is the recommended port for printing IPDS jobs.

26

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide PSF/MVS LAN Printing Using the Standard Network Port or Internal Print Server

6

Save/submit any changes and return to the Ready screen.

7

To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Reports > Network Setup Page. This can be Network Setup Page, Network 1 Setup Page, or

Network 2 Setup Page. Note that the Network Job Timeout is identified as End-of-job Timeout on this report.

Step 5 Configure the Printer’s Network Job Timeout

Note: If you specified Port 5001 or 9600 in the PSF STARTUP PROC, you do not need to configure the

printer’s Network Job Timeout. Go to directly to Step 6 [page 27]

.

Important! If you specified Port 9100 in the PSF STARTUP PROC, the printer’s Network Job Timeout must be manually disabled by setting it to "0" (or to "Disable"). This is necessary to allow the host DISCINTV value or the printer’s IPDS Timeout value to control when print jobs from another protocol, interface, server, or host can be started. It also prevents the printer from ending the IPDS session if communication is delayed between the host and printer.

Additional information on the printer IPDS Timeout value may be found in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

Follow these steps to disable the printer’s Network Job Timeout from the control panel:

1 Navigate to Network Job Timeout.

To find the Network Job Timeout Option on the control panel: On printers, press MENU and then select

Settings > Setup Menu > Timeouts > Network Job Timeout. On MFPs, touch Menus and then select

Settings > General Settings > Timeouts > Network Job Timeout.

2

Select 0. This disables the network job timeout.

3

Save/Submit any changes and return to the Ready screen.

4

To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Reports > Network Setup Page. This can be Network Setup Page, Network 1 Setup Page, or

Network 2 Setup Page. Note that the Network Job Timeout is identified as End-of-job Timeout on this report.

Step 6 Select the IPDS Emulation, Bar Code Size, Host Resolution, and Fax Interrupt

Settings

It is important to select the correct emulation in the printer IPDS MENU before sending IPDS jobs.

Guidelines for Choosing the IPDS Emulation Setting

The IPDS Emulation, the BAR CODE and Host Resolution options are found in the printer control panel under MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION.

1

"Resident" is the default setting. If you are replacing a printer that used a Native Emulation setting,

"Resident" is the recommended emulation.

2

If you are replacing a printer that used a 4028 Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "4028" under BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

27

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide PSF/MVS LAN Printing Using the Standard Network Port or Internal Print Server

3

If you are replacing a printer that used a 43xx Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "43xx" under BAR CODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

4

If you are replacing a printer that used a 3812/3816 Emulation, select the "3812/3816" Emulation. This emulation only accepts 240 dpi resources (fonts, overlays, etc.) from the host and does not support DBCS printing.

On MFPs, you can set the print priority of received faxes. Refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for additional information about Fax Interrupt. This option is found under MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS

MENU > EMULATION.

Refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for information on these options and other IPDS MENU settings to format IPDS jobs.

Note 1: If the IPDS code release on an MFP is 3.00-01090 or higher, "Copy Interrupt" is supported: an IPDS job can be interrupted by copy jobs and will resume printing automatically. At lower release levels, intervening copy jobs will be spooled to disk (when available) and be processed after the IPDS job is finished.

Note 2: The supported printers and MFPs do not contain an Advanced Function Common Control Unit

(AFCCU).

Step 7 Verify IPDS Printing

If you have completed the steps above to configure the host and printer, you are ready to print your first IPDS job.

1

Send an IPDS job from your host system.

2

Observe the printer control panel. When the first job data is received, BUSY should be displayed in the

printer control panel. If the job does not print, go to Step 8 Troubleshooting .

3

After the last page of the IPDS job prints, BUSY will remain displayed until the host or printer ends the session. This is controlled by the DISCINTV value on the host or by the IPDS Timeout on the printer.

4

You may want to refer to the IPDS Emulation User's Guide to determine if other IPDS MENU settings need to be changed.

Step 8 Troubleshooting

If the IPDS job does not print, try the following.

1

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check to be sure the printer is connected to the network. Try to PING the printer.

2

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel, or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check the status of the printer on the host. The status will be "inactive" if waiting for a print job. If the status is "drained", restart the printer.

3

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check all host and printer settings to be sure they are correct.

4

If you receive an IPDS Negative Acknowledgement (NACK) beginning with ’08C1’ indicating that the job is printing outside the printer valid printable area, choose one of the following solutions:

a) Change the Printable Area setting to Physical Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select

Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Printable Area.

b) Change your application to position the text within the printable area. Refer to Printable Area in the

IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for more information.

c) Change the Exception Ctrl setting to Sup Beyond VPA. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Exception Ctrl. The printer will not send a NACK to the host when printing outside the valid printable area.

d) In the PSF STARTUP PROC, set DATACK = BLKPOS. This will block any VPA or position checks.

5

If you receive an IPDS Negative Acknowledgement (NACK) beginning with ’0821’ indicating there are undefined characters in the job, choose one of the following solutions:

a) Change your application to send only valid characters and control codes.

b) Change the Exception Ctrl setting to Sup Undef Char. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Exception Ctrl. The printer will not send undefined character NACKs to the host.

c) In the PSF STARTUP PROC, set DATACK = BLKCHAR. This will block any invalid character errors.

6

If the job prints, but some characters are printed incorrectly, you should check the default code page setting.

Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Default

Codepage. On printers, the next step is to select Codepages A-E or Codepages F-K or Codepages L-Z, then select the proper code page from these groups. On MFPs, the complete list of code pages appear beside Default Codepage.

7

If the job prints, but some bar codes print in the wrong size, refer to the Bar Code Size option in the IPDS

User’s Guide for more information. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu >

IPDS MENU > EMULATION > BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

Troubleshooting

Step 1 Choose a Printer Port for Printing IPDS Jobs

Several printer ports are available for receiving IPDS jobs when using the printer Standard Network port or the

MarkNet internal LAN print server. The printer port will be used in one of the following steps.

Port descriptions:

Port 5001 - This is the recommended port selection for receiving IPDS jobs. This port should only be used for receiving IPDS jobs. The printer’s Network Job Timeout and Job Buffering settings are automatically set to the correct settings for receiving IPDS jobs on this port. This port is recommended when a significant performance impact is seen when downloading IPDS resources for each job. With the proper configuration settings on the host and printer, the IPDS resources can be saved in the printer memory while the printer is printing non-IPDS jobs.

Port 9100 - This port can receive PCL, Postscript, or IPDS jobs. In order to print IPDS jobs, the printer’s

Network Job Timeout must be manually set to "0" (or to "Disable") and Job Buffering must be manually set to "OFF". These settings also affect printing of non-IPDS jobs.

35

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide PSF/2 LAN Printing Using an Internal LAN Print Server

How to find the Network Job Timeout Option (which is also known as End-of-Job Timeout) on the control panel: On printers, press MENU and then select Settings > Setup Menu > Timeouts > Network Job

Timeout. On MFPs, touch Menus and then select Settings > General Settings > Timeouts > Network Job

Timeout.

How to find Job Buffering on the control panel: Job Buffering is only visible as a menu setting if there is a hard disk installed in the printer. Press MENU or touch Menus and then select Network/Ports > Standard

Network > Job Buffering.

Port 9600 - This port should only be used for receiving IPDS jobs. The printer’s Network Job Timeout setting is automatically set to the correct setting for receiving IPDS jobs on this port. This port is only provided for compatibility with some older printers. Port 5001 is the recommended port for printing IPDS jobs.

Step 2 Create a Printer in PSF/2

To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Reports > Network Setup Page. This can be Network Setup Page, Network 1 Setup Page, or

Network 2 Setup Page. Note that the Network Job Timeout is identified as End-of-job Timeout on this report.

Step 5 Configure the Printer’s Network Job Timeout

Note: If you specified Port 5001 or 9600 as the TCP/IP port number in the printer created in Step

2 [page 36] ,

you do not need to configure the printer’s Network Job Timeout. Go directly to Step

6 [page 41] .

Important! If you specified Port 9100 as the TCP/IP port number, the printer’s Network Job Timeout must be manually disabled by setting it to "0" (or to "Disable"). This is necessary to allow the host’s Release Timer value or the printer’s IPDS Timeout value to control when print jobs from another protocol, interface, server, or host can be started. It also prevents the printer from ending the IPDS session if communication is delayed between the host and printer.

Additional information on the printer IPDS Timeout value may be found in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

Follow these steps to disable the printer’s Network Job Timeout from the control panel:

40

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide PSF/2 LAN Printing Using an Internal LAN Print Server

1

"Resident" is the default setting. If you are replacing a printer that used a Native Emulation setting,

"Resident" is the recommended emulation.

2

If you are replacing a printer that used a 4028 Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "4028" under BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

3

If you are replacing a printer that used a 43xx Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "43xx" under BAR CODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

4

If you are replacing a printer that used a 3812/3816 Emulation, select the "3812/3816" Emulation. This emulation only accepts 240 dpi resources (fonts, overlays, etc.) from the host and does not support DBCS printing.

On MFPs, you can set the print priority of received faxes. Refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for additional information about Fax Interrupt. This option is found under MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS

MENU > EMULATION.

Note 2: The supported printers and MFPs do not contain an Advanced Function Common Control Unit

(AFCCU).

Step 7 Verify IPDS Printing

If you have completed the steps above to configure the host and printer, you are ready to print your first IPDS job.

1

Send an IPDS job from your host system.

2

Observe the printer control panel. When the first job data is received, BUSY should be displayed in the

printer control panel. If the job does not print, go to Step 8 Troubleshooting .

3

After the last page of the IPDS job prints, BUSY will remain displayed until the host or printer ends the session. This is controlled by the Release Timer on the host or by the IPDS Timeout on the printer.

4

You may want to refer to the IPDS Emulation User's Guide to determine if other IPDS MENU settings need to be changed.

Step 8 Troubleshooting

If the IPDS job does not print, try the following.

1

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check to be sure the printer is connected to the network. Try to PING the printer.

2

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check all host and printer settings to be sure they are correct.

3

If you receive an IPDS Negative Acknowledgement (NACK) beginning with ’08C1’ indicating that the job is printing outside the printer valid printable area, choose one of the following solutions:

a) Change the Printable Area setting to Physical Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select

Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Printable Area.

b) Change your application to position the text within the printable area. Refer to Printable Area in the

IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for more information.

c) Change the Exception Ctrl setting to Sup Beyond VPA. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Exception Ctrl. The printer will not send a NACK to the host when printing outside the valid printable area.

4

If you receive an IPDS Negative Acknowledgement (NACK) beginning with ’0821’ indicating there are undefined characters in the job, choose one of the following solutions:

a) Change your application to send only valid characters and control codes.

b) Change the Exception Ctrl setting to Sup Undef Char. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Exception Ctrl. The printer will not send undefined character NACKs to the host.

5

If the job prints, but some characters are printed incorrectly, you should check the default code page setting.

Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION > Default

Codepage. On printers, the next step is to select Codepages A-E or Codepages F-K or Codepages L-Z, then select the proper code page from these groups. On MFPs, the complete list of code pages appear beside Default Codepage.

6

If the job prints, but some bar codes print in the wrong size, refer to the Bar Code Size option in the IPDS

User’s Guide for more information. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu >

IPDS MENU > EMULATION > BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

PSF/AIX LAN Printing Using an Internal LAN Print

Server

With the optional Card for IPDS/SCS/TNe and an internal LAN print server installed, the printer can receive, process, and print AFP/IPDS print jobs over TCP/IP from PSF/AIX

The information below will lead you through the steps for setting up PSF/AIX and the printer to print IPDS jobs over a LAN. The printer must be configured with a Standard Network port or MarkNet internal LAN print server.

Refer to the IPDS User’s Guide for detailed instructions on using the control panel to select and change option settings.

Steps

The following steps must be completed to begin printing IPDS jobs.

1

Choose a Printer Port for Printing IPDS Jobs

2

Define the Printer to PSF/AIX

3

Configure the Printer’s Print Server TCP/IP Settings

4

Configure the Printer’s Network Job Timeout

5

Troubleshooting

Step 1 Choose a Printer Port for Printing IPDS Jobs

Several printer ports are available for receiving IPDS jobs when using the printer Standard Network port or the

MarkNet internal LAN print server. The printer port will be used in one of the following steps.

Port descriptions:

Port 5001 - This is the recommended port selection for receiving IPDS jobs. This port should only be used for receiving IPDS jobs. The printer’s Network Job Timeout and Job Buffering settings are automatically set to the correct settings for receiving IPDS jobs on this port. This port is recommended when a significant performance impact is seen when downloading IPDS resources for each job. With the proper configuration settings on the host and printer, the IPDS resources can be saved in the printer memory while the printer is printing non-IPDS jobs.

Port 9100 - This port can receive PCL, Postscript, or IPDS jobs. In order to print IPDS jobs, the printer’s

Network Job Timeout must be manually set to "0" (or to "Disable") and Job Buffering must be manually set to "OFF". These settings also affect printing of non-IPDS jobs.

How to find the Network Job Timeout Option (which is also known as End-of-Job Timeout) on the control panel: On printers, press MENU and then select Settings > Setup Menu > Timeouts > Network Job

Timeout. On MFPs, touch Menus and then select Settings > General Settings > Timeouts > Network Job

Timeout.

How to find Job Buffering on the control panel: Job Buffering is only visible as a menu setting if there is a hard disk installed in the printer. Press MENU or touch Menus and then select Network/Ports > Standard

Network > Job Buffering.

44

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide PSF/AIX LAN Printing Using an Internal LAN Print Server

Port 9600 - This port should only be used for receiving IPDS jobs. The printer’s Network Job Timeout setting is automatically set to the correct setting for receiving IPDS jobs on this port. This port is only provided for compatibility with some older printers. Port 5001 is the recommended port for printing IPDS jobs.

Step 2 Define the Printer to PSF/AIX

To create a new IPDS printer definition in PSF/AIX perform the following actions:

a) Execute the command

smit psf_add_prt_tcpip

to get the PSF/AIX SMIT Printer

Definition for TCP/IP attached printers.

b) Configure the following:

Connect TIMEOUT: Enter a name for the IPDS printer. This name will also be used for the print queue associated with the printer.

Internet ADDRESS: Enter the host name (preferred) or IP address you have assigned to the MarkNet adapter (e.g. 157.184.67.102). If you use the host name, PSF/AIX will resolve it into an IP address either through the Host file or through a Domain Naming Service (DNS) Server.

PORT Number: 5001 (Port number selected in Step

1 .)

Number of QUEUE DEVICES: Leave this at the default value (4 devices) initially. You can tune this option later, according to the throughput of the printer.

Connect TIMEOUT: Initially leave this at the default value (30 seconds). Refer to the PSF/AIX on-line help for information about when to increase this value.

DESCRIPTION: Enter an optional description for the printer.

c) Press Enter to create the new IPDS printer definition.

Note:

You can check the connection by using the enq command to place jobs in the queue. Example:

enq -P'psfqueue' -odatatype=AFPDS /etc/motd

You can also use the command

smit psf_data_type_sel

to queue the job.

See also the Installing a TCP/IP-attached IPDS printer in the IBM AIX Print Service Facility/6000: Print

Administration Version 1.2 manual for further information about this task.

Step 3 Configure the Printer’s Print Server TCP/IP Settings

To enable IPDS printing with a Standard Network port or a MarkNet internal LAN print server, several settings must be verified. You can verify these settings from the printer control panel as shown below.

1

From a Ready state press the MENU button (printers) or touch

2

Use the navigation buttons or icons to scroll to Network/Ports.

(Menus on MFPs).

45

(Address of your WINS Server)

DNS Server Address

157.184.115.7

(Address of your DNS Server)

6

Save/submit any changes and return to the Ready screen.

7

To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Reports > Network Setup Page. This can be Network Setup Page, Network 1 Setup Page, or

Network 2 Setup Page. Note that the Network Job Timeout is identified as End-of-job Timeout on this report.

46

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide PSF/AIX LAN Printing Using an Internal LAN Print Server

Step 4 Configure the Printer’s Network Job Timeout

Note: If you specified Port 5001 or 9600 as the TCP/IP port number in the printer created in Step

2 [page 45] ,

you do not need to configure the printer’s Network Job Timeout. Go directly to Step

5 [page 47] .

Important! If you specified Port 9100 as the TCP/IP port number, the printer’s Network Job Timeout must be manually disabled by setting it to "0" (or to "Disable"). This is necessary to allow the host’s Release Timer value or the printer’s IPDS Timeout value to control when print jobs from another protocol, interface, server, or host can be started. It also prevents the printer from ending the IPDS session if communication is delayed between the host and printer.

Additional information on the printer IPDS Timeout value may be found in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

Follow these steps to disable the printer’s Network Job Timeout from the control panel:

1 Navigate to Network Job Timeout.

To find the Network Job Timeout Option on the control panel: On printers, press MENU and then select

Settings > Setup Menu > Timeouts > Network Job Timeout. On MFPs, touch Menus and then select

Settings > General Settings > Timeouts > Network Job Timeout.

2

Select 0. This disables the network job timeout.

3

Save/Submit any changes and return to the Ready screen.

4

To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Reports > Network Setup Page. This can be Network Setup Page, Network 1 Setup Page, or

Network 2 Setup Page. Note that the Network Job Timeout is identified as End-of-job Timeout on this report.

Step 5 Select the IPDS Emulation, Bar Code Size, Host Resolution, and Fax Interrupt

Settings

It is important to select the correct emulation in the printer IPDS MENU before sending IPDS jobs.

Guidelines for Choosing the IPDS Emulation Setting

The IPDS Emulation, the BAR CODE and Host Resolution options are found in the printer control panel under MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION.

1

"Resident" is the default setting. If you are replacing a printer that used a Native Emulation setting,

"Resident" is the recommended emulation.

2

If you are replacing a printer that used a 4028 Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "4028" under BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

3

If you are replacing a printer that used a 43xx Emulation setting, choose the "Resident" Emulation and change the following settings:

a) Set Bar Code Size to "43xx" under BAR CODE > Bar Code Size.

b) The recommended Host Resolution setting is "Auto". If you experience printing problems, set Host

Resolution to "300".

47

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide PSF/AIX LAN Printing Using an Internal LAN Print Server

4

If you are replacing a printer that used a 3812/3816 Emulation, select the "3812/3816" Emulation. This emulation only accepts 240 dpi resources (fonts, overlays, etc.) from the host and does not support DBCS printing.

On MFPs, you can set the print priority of received faxes. Refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for additional information about Fax Interrupt. This option is found under MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS

MENU > EMULATION.

Refer to the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for information on these options and other IPDS MENU settings to format IPDS jobs.

Note 1: If the IPDS code release on an MFP is 3.00-01090 or higher, "Copy Interrupt" is supported: an IPDS job can be interrupted by copy jobs and will resume printing automatically. At lower release levels, intervening copy jobs will be spooled to disk (when available) and be processed after the IPDS job is finished.

Note 2: The supported printers and MFPs do not contain an Advanced Function Common Control Unit

(AFCCU).

Step 6 Verify IPDS Printing

If you have completed the steps above to configure the host and printer, you are ready to print your first IPDS job.

1

Send an IPDS job from your host system.

2

Observe the printer control panel. When the first job data is received, BUSY should be displayed in the

printer control panel. If the job does not print, go to Step 7 Troubleshooting .

3

After the last page of the IPDS job prints, BUSY will remain displayed until the host or printer ends the session. This is controlled by the Release Timer on the host or by the IPDS Timeout on the printer.

4

You may want to refer to the IPDS Emulation User's Guide to determine if other IPDS MENU settings need to be changed.

Step 7 Troubleshooting

If the IPDS job does not print, try the following.

1

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check to be sure the printer is connected to the network. Try to PING the printer.

2

If BUSY is not displayed in the printer control panel or if the printer remains in Ready mode, check all host and printer settings to be sure they are correct.

3

Problem 1: Fatal error in print queue; incorrect Busy / Timeout

The print queue stops with a fatal error which requires operator intervention or the printer stays BUSY even when no IPDS jobs are printing.

Solution to Problem

1

The host still has control of the printer.

You need to adjust the Adapter for SCS timeout, the Network Job Timeout on the printer, the printer IPDS

Timeout value, the host port value, or the appropriate timer/timeout value on your IPDS host.

You may have to adjust a combination of these to solve the problem.

Adapter for SCS timeout

Refer to the appropriate section in this guide for information on changing the timeout value.

for Twinax: “Set the Adapter for SCS Twinax Timeout” , page 16

• for Coax:

“Set the Adapter for SCS Coax Timeout” on page 31

IPDS Timeout = Host Controlled

(when using Standard Network port or MarkNet internal LAN print server)

Note: The printer defaults to Host Controlled when receiving IPDS jobs on port 9100.

If you selected any other IPDS Timeout value go to IPDS Timeout = 15 seconds to 10 minutes below (page

56 ).

If you selected the IPDS Timeout value of Host Controlled in order to allow the host to directly control ending

(disconnecting) a LAN session, follow the steps below to correct the problem.

1

Disable the printer’s Network Job Timeout by setting it to 0. For instructions on how to do this, see the

"Configure the Printer’s Network Job Timeout" step in the chapter in this guide that describes your host environment.

2

Change the host port setting to 9100, 5001, or 9600. See

“Printer and Host Timeout Values” [page 50] for

valid values. Additional information on the IPDS Timeout and port settings may be found in the IPDS

Emulation User’s Guide.

The printer memory is full and the page cannot be printed at the selected print resolution setting. Press Go and the page is printed at a lower resolution. If this is a constant problem and you want to print at the higher resolution, you need to add more memory to the printer.

This message is an informational message on some models. The printer will display the message and continue printing the job without operator intervention. If this message continues to appear when printing jobs, add more memory to the printer.

Requirements vary greatly according to type of printing and types of resources being used. For information on the minimum recommended installed memory for various printing requirements on each supported printer, refer to the appendix on memory requirements and recommendations in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

Problem 3: IPDS memory exception

Sometimes an IPDS memory exception is reported to the host.

Solution to Problem

3

You need to do one or more of the following:

A. Postscript or PCL resources may be saved in the printer memory. The memory cannot be used by IPDS.

Set Resource Save to "Off" to allow permanent downloaded resources from PostScript and PCL jobs to be deleted. On printers, Resource Save is found under MENU > Setup Menu > Settings. On MFPs, it is found under Menus > Settings > Print Settings > Setup Menu. Try reprinting the job after powering the printer

OFF and ON.

B. There may be insufficient printer memory to print the IPDS job with print resolution selected in the printer's

MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION >IPDS Print Res menu item. Select a lower print resolution and try reprinting the job. If using the Adapter for SCS, you must power the printer OFF and ON for this change to take effect.

C. There may be insufficient printer memory to temporarily store IPDS resources and print non-IPDS jobs. Add more memory to the printer. Requirements vary greatly according to type of printing and types of resources being used. For information on the minimum recommended installed memory for various printing requirements on each supported printer, refer to the appendix on memory requirements and recommendations in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

D. The host may be downloading more IPDS resources than can be held in the printer's memory. Add more memory to the printer. Requirements vary greatly according to type of printing and types of resources being used. For information on the minimum recommended installed memory for various printing requirements on each supported printer, refer to the appendix on memory requirements and recommendations in the IPDS

Emulation User’s Guide.

Problem 4: Memory Full; 38I Memory Full

Sometimes the message 38I Memory Full or Memory Full displays on the printer control panel and the connection with the printer is lost. What do these messages mean? What should I try?

57

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide Printer Messages and Problems

Solution to Problem

4

38I Memory Full - this message is generated when there is insufficient memory to print the page.

Memory Full - this message means the printer could not reestablish connection to PSF, the resources have been lost. The printer is disconnected from the host.

These messages appear because there is insufficient memory to print the IPDS job or to temporarily store the resources. The memory is probably being used to store PostScript, PCL and/or IPDS resources.

A. Set Resource Save to Off to allow permanent downloaded resources from PostScript and PCL jobs to be deleted. On printers, Resource Save is found under MENU > Setup Menu > Settings. On MFPs, it is found under Menus > Settings > Print Settings > Setup Menu. Try reprinting the job after powering the printer

OFF and then ON.

B. Add more memory to the printer. Requirements vary greatly according to type of printing and types of resources being used. For information on the minimum recommended installed memory for various printing requirements on each supported printer, refer to the appendix on memory requirements and recommendations in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

C. If a LAN connection is used through the Standard Network port or a MarkNet internal LAN print server, try setting IPDS Timeout to Host Controlled and set the host release timer to a small value. This means that the host deletes the downloaded IPDS resources when disconnecting. When a new IPDS job is sent from the host new IPDS resources are downloaded to the printer.

Problem 5: Menu Choices for Adapter for SCS

I am using the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe together with the Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS. Where are the menus for the Adapter for SCS?

Solution to Problem

5

Use the control panel to navigate to the Option Card Menu. If the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe and the

Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS are both installed, SCS MENU 1 or SCS MENU 2 will be displayed along with

IPDS MENU and SCS/TNe MENU. The Adapter for SCS menu system is called SCS MENU. Depending on the slot in which the Adapter for SCS is installed, SCS MENU will be found under SCS MENU 1 or SCS MENU 2.

Tip:

Place a label on the front of the printer indicating the connector locations of all installed options.

Problem 6: Large or complex PostScript or PCL jobs do not print after installing IPDS emulation

Before installing the IPDS emulation, my PostScript and PCL jobs printed correctly. Now some large Post-

Script and PCL jobs do not print.

Solution to Problem

6

A. If you have set host and printer settings to temporarily store IPDS resources when printing non-IPDS jobs, change these settings to allow the host to delete the IPDS resources before printing non-IPDS jobs. Refer to IPDS Timeout in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide for more information on setting printer values and see the appropriate host installation section in this guide to change the host timeout value.

B. Add more memory to the printer. This will allow IPDS resources to be temporarily stored and more complex non-IPDS jobs to print. Requirements vary greatly according to type of printing and types of resources being used. For information on the minimum recommended installed memory for various printing requirements on

each supported printer, refer to the appendix on memory requirements and recommendations in the IPDS

Emulation User’s Guide.

Problem 7: Remote output queue (name clash)

I'm trying to set up a remote printer with the Standard Network port or a MarkNet internal LAN print server

(named IPDSPRT) from my AS/400. When I try to print to it, I get an error message such as:

• "All sessions ended for device IPDSPRT"

• "Bind sense code ... received for mode QSPWTR device IPDSPRT"

• "Writer...did not end normally"

Solution to Problem

7

A remote output queue created using CRTOUTQ and a PSFCFG device created using WRKAFP2 or CRTPS-

FCFG have the same user defined name. You must use a unique name for the remote output queue for an

ASCII device using TCP/IP and the AS/400 Host Print Transform. This cannot be the same name used to define the printer as an IPDS printer with WRKAFP2 or CRTPSFCFG.

Problem 8: Intervention Required messages

Intervention Required messages (printer offline, paper jam, out of paper, cover open, etc.) from the printer are causing problems on the IPDS host.

Solution to Problem

8

You can suppress this message reporting by selecting the value Do Not Report for the option Intervention

Required in the IPDS menu system - MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > EMULATION. You would then rely on users noticing the status of the printer.

Problem 9: Bad Memory System

The message Bad Memory System displays and the printer stops.

Solution to Problem

9

The IPDS memory has been corrupted. Power the printer OFF and then ON.

Problem 10: Job Buffering ( = On or = Off?)

IPDS jobs will not work with Job Buffering set to On.

Solution to Problem

10

The host expects immediate responses from the printer during IPDS job processing. Buffering an IPDS job to the disk delays the return of these responses. Choose one of the following options.

A. Change the port setting to 5001 on the host. The Job Buffering setting does not affect IPDS jobs received on this port. Non-IPDS jobs, which are received on other ports, can still be buffered.

B. Set Job Buffering to Off under the Standard Network, Network 1, or Network 2 menu in the printer's

59

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide Printer Messages and Problems

Network/Ports menu.

Problem 11: Not enough memory for IPDS

I get the message Not enough memory for IPDS.

Solution to Problem

11

If less than 64 MB printer memory is installed, the IPDS Menu settings can be accessed and configured, but

IPDS jobs can not be printed from the host (jobs may be printed using other emulations). To activate IPDS printing, make sure that there is at least 64 MB printer memory installed.

Problem 12: Recycle Power

After I change a setting, the control panel displays not only Submitting Selection , but also Recycle

Power.

Solution to Problem

12

An established host session was idle when you changed settings.

Power the printer OFF then ON. This causes the host to request the new printer settings and make them active.

Alternatively, end the current IPDS session at the host and start a new one.

Problem 13: Resources Lost

The message Resources Lost appears on the display before an IPDS job prints.

Solution to Problem

13

IPDS resources were deleted by the printer.

A. Try to determine what is causing the resources to be deleted. For more information, refer to the section on

IPDS Timeout in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

B. Non-IPDS jobs may cause IPDS resources to be deleted. Add additional memory. Requirements vary greatly according to type of printing and types of resources being used. For information on the minimum recommended installed memory for various printing requirements on each supported printer, refer to the appendix on memory requirements and recommendations in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

Problem 14: 1565 EMUL ERROR LOAD EMUL OPTION

1565 EMUL ERROR LOAD EMUL OPTION appears on the display after updating the printer code.

Solution to Problem

14

The IPDS emulation version contained in the Card will not function with the printer code. Download the correct

IPDS emulation version. See the section on support (page

5

) for firmware update information.

Problem 15: Update Option Card Firmware

Update Option Card Firmware appears on the display.

Solution to Problem

15

This message indicates that the IPDS/SCS/TNe or printer firmware on the option card must be updated. See the section on support (page

5 ) for firmware update information.

Warning: Continuing to use the printer without updating the firmware may result in jobs not printing correctly or hardware options (such as output bins or finishers) not operating correctly.

Problem 16: 34 Short Paper

34 Short Paper appears on the display

Solution to Problem

16

A. Load the correct paper size and/or check tray paper guides to be sure the correct size is sensed by the printer.

B. Select Continue and the job will be printed.

Note:

The host is notified of the paper change. Several jobs may print formatted for the wrong paper size before the host changes to the new paper size.

Problem 17: Standard Network port not working

I have a Standard Network port and a MarkNet internal LAN print server installed. My Standard Network port is not working.

Solution to Problem

17

The Standard Network port cannot be used when a MarkNet internal LAN print server is installed. Try the following.

A. Obtain an unused network address from your administrator.

B. Remove the MarkNet internal LAN print server.

C. Use the new address and other information to configure the Standard Network port.

D. Attach the Standard Network port to the network.

E. Send a job to the printer.

F. If the job does not print, you should recheck all settings on the printer and host.

G. If the job prints, you must decide which port to use for receiving jobs.

Problem 18: Active IPDS Ses. Ignoring Request

The message Active IPDS Ses. Ignoring Request is displayed when selecting Yes to print the IPDS fonts.

61

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide Printer Messages and Problems

Solution to Problem

18

An IPDS session is active with the host. End the session to print the IPDS fonts page. For more information, refer to the section Print IPDS Fonts in the IPDS Emulation User’s Guide.

Problem 19: Disk Protected, Fonts Not Erased or Flash Protected, Fonts Not Erased

One of the above messages is displayed when I select Yes under the Remove Fonts menu item.

Solution to Problem

19

The disk or the flash is password protected. Remove the password protection to remove the IPDS fonts and then restore the password protection.

Problem 20: Disk Full or Flash Full

The printer control panel displays a disk full or flash full message and the printer stops printing.

Solution to Problem

20

The hard disk or user flash became full before all font resources from the host were captured. Select Continue to resume printing. When the printer returns to Ready, disable capturing of IPDS fonts. To disable capturing, select MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > FONT CAPTURE > Capture Fonts > Disable.

If additional resources must be captured, install a larger user flash or hard disk. Note that MFPs do not allow installation of user hard disks. Most MFPs are delivered with hard disks installed.

You may also choose to capture fewer fonts, reformat the user flash or remove IPDS fonts from the disk and capture the fonts again.

To remove IPDS fonts from a disk, select MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > FONT CAP-

TURE > Remove Fonts > Yes.

Removing fonts by using the IPDS MENU does not free space on a user flash, it only marks the fonts as unusable. The same fonts can be downloaded again if space is available. To actually clear IPDS fonts from a user flash, reformat the flash. This will remove all information stored on the flash.

On printers, select MENU > Settings > Utilities Menu > Format Flash > Yes.

On MFPs, select Menus > Settings > Print Settings > Utilities Menu > Format Flash > Yes.

Problem 21: 55 Unsupported Option in Slot X

The message "55 Unsupported Card" or "55 Unsupported Option in Slot 1 or 2" appears when the Coax

/Twinax Adapter for SCS is installed.

Please see “Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS Support” [page 53] .
