8. Save/submit any changes and return to the Home screen.

9. To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. From Home screen go to Settings >

Reports > Network > Network Setup Page.

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

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

Settings > IPDS Settings > 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 addi¬tional information about Fax Interrupt. This option is found under Settings > IPDS Settings > 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: On MFPs, "Copy Interrupt" is supported: an IPDS job can be interrupted by copy jobs and will resume printing automatically.

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

11

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

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.

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 or IPDS should be displayed in the printer control panel. If the job does not print, go to Step 7 Troubleshooting .

5. After the last page of the IPDS job prints, Busy or IPDS 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 7: Troubleshooting

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

1. If Busy or IPDS 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 or IPDS 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. On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS Settings > Emulation > Printable Area. b. Change your application to positionthe 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. On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS Settings > 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. On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS Settings > 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.

On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS Settings > Emulation > Default

Codepage. On some 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 models with touch screens, 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. On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS

12

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

Settings > Emulation > BARCODE > Bar Code Size.

7. Refer to Chapter 5. Printer Messages and Problems 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.

3. Save/submit any changes and return to the Home screen.

4. To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. From Home screen go to Settings >

Reports > Network > Network Setup Page.

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

Settings > IPDS Settings > 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 Settings > IPDS Settings > 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: On MFPs, "Copy Interrupt" is supported: an IPDS job can be interrupted by copy jobs and will resume printing automatically.

18

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

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 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 7: Troubleshooting

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

1. If Busy or IPDS 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 or IPDS 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 or IPDS 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. On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS Settings > 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. On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS Settings > 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. On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS Settings > 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.

On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS Settings > Emulation > Default

19

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

Codepage. On some 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 models with touch screens, 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. On the home screen of the control panel, proceed to Settings > IPDS

Settings > Emulation > Bar Code Size.

8. Refer to Chapter 5. Printer Messages and Problems for additional problem solutions.

9. 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 PSF/2 LAN Printing Using an Internal LAN PrinterServer

3. PSF/2 LAN Printing Using an Internal LAN

PrintServer

With the optional Card for IPDS and an internal LAN print server installed, the printer can receive, process, and print

AFP/IPDS print jobs over TCP/IP directly from PSF/2.

The information below will lead you through the steps for setting up PSF/2 and the printer to print IPDS jobs over a

LAN. The printer must be configured with a Standard Network port or a 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.

Refer to the PSF/2 documentation if you need a description of how to connect PSF/2 to a host to receive AFP and

IPDS data.

Steps

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

1. Choose a Printer Port for Printing IPDS Jobs

2. Create a Printer in PSF/2

3. Enable Printer Sharing With the Job Interval Shutdown Timer

4. Configure the Printer’s Print Server TCP/IP Settings

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

6. Verify IPDS Printing

7. 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 is only used for receiving IPDS jobs.

Port 9600 - This port is only provided for compatibility with some older printers. This is not recommended for the printer models listed on this document.

Port 9100 - This port is only provided for compatibility with some older printers. This is not recommended for the printer models listed on this document.

Note: If you are replacing a printer using port 9100 or 9600, change to port 5001.

Step 2: Create a Printer in PSF/2

Step 3: Enable Printer Sharing With the Job Interval Shutdown Timer

To enable the printer to start other print jobs from another protocol, interface or server, the PSF/2 tuning option Job

Interval Shutdown Timer is used.

Use the following steps to set the Job Interval Shutdown Timer option: a. Start the PSF/2 control panel by selecting the PSF/2 folder and then the PSF/2 Control Panel icon. b. On the PSF/2 Control Panel select Profile and then Change.

23

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

c. Now select Tuning Options.

The Job Interval Shutdown Timer indicates the number of seconds PSF/2 waits before shutting down when there are no jobs in the queue. In other words this is the amount of time that PSF/2 remains active after the last job is printed.

Valid values: integers 1 to 9999

1-9998 time in seconds to wait between jobs

9999 wait indefinitely for the next job to be received

Step 4: Configure the Printer’s Print Server TCP/IP Settings

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide Printer Messages and Problems

Problem 1: Printer remains in Ready and message on Host

iSeries and AS/400 - Writer is started but printer remains in Ready status. After several minutes, the message queue may have the following messages:

1. Connection with device is being retried

2. Session with device ended abnormally

3. Writer did not end normally

Solution to Problem 1

Check the port defined on the host for printing IPDS to the printer. Port 9100 is not supported for IPDS printing.

Change the port selection on the host to 5001. If this does not resolve the issue, check the IP address and other network parameters defined for communicating with the printer.

Problem 2: "1510 Incorrect DLE Installation, install in the other slot"

The message, "1510 Incorrect DLE Installation, install in the other slot", is displayed after I installed the optional IPDS firmware card.

Solution to Problem 2

Power the printer OFF, remove the optional IPDS firmware card, and install it in the other connector on the system card. Some models require the optional firmware card to be installed in a specific connector.

Problem 3: Fatal error in print queue; incorrect Busy / Timeout

The print queue stops with a fatal error which requires operator intervention or the printer displays Busy or

IPDS even when no IPDS jobs are printing.

Solution to Problem 3

The host still has control of the printer.

You need to adjust 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.

IPDS Timeout = Host Controlled

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

(disconnecting) a LAN session, correct the appropriate host timer/timeout value as shown below.

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 6: 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 6

A remote output queue created using CRTOUTQ and a PSFCFG device created using WRKAFP2 or CRTPSFCFG 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 7: Intervention Required messages

32

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide Printer Messages and Problems

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

Solution to Problem 7

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 8: Bad Memory System

The message Bad Memory System displays and the printer stops.

Solution to Problem 8

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

Problem 9: 1565 EMUL ERROR LOAD EMUL OPTION

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

Solution to Problem 9

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 7) for firmware update information.

Problem 10: 34 Incorrect Media

34 Incorrect Media appears on the display

Solution to Problem 10

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

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 11: 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 11

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.

33

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide Printer Messages and Problems

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 12: Disk Protected, Fonts Not Erased or Flash Protected, Fonts Not Erased

One of the above messages is displayed when I select menu items under the Remove Resources Menu.

Solution to Problem 12

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

Problem 13: 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 13

The hard disk or user flash became full before all resources from the host were captured. Select Continue to resume printing. When the printer returns to Ready, disable capturing of resources. To disable capturing, select MENU/Menus

> Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > RESOURCE CAPTURE > Resources to Capture. Disable capturing of resources.

If additional resources must be captured, install a larger user flash or hard disk.

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

To remove resources from a disk, select MENU/Menus > Option Card Menu > IPDS MENU > RESOURCE

CAPTURE > Remove Resources.

Problem 14: The printer prints "smiley faces" or does not print anything

When an IPDS job is released, the printer prints "smiley faces" or does not print anything and the job remains on the print queue.

Solution to Problem 14

Port 9100, 9600 or some other unsupported port number is specified as the IPDS communications port on the host.

The printer supports port 5001 for IPDS printing. Change the port number on the host to 5001 which is recommended port number for printing IPDS jobs is 5001.

Problem 15: Message "900.40 Firmware error" displays when I power on the printer

The printer control panel displays "900.40 Firmware error.. ..256MB required" when I power on the printer with the IPDS card installed.

Solution to Problem 15

34

IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide Printer Messages and Problems

A minimum of 256 MB of user memory (DRAM) is required to activate IPDS printing. The message indicates there is less than 256 MB of memory in the printer. Add additional DRAM to bring the installed total to 256 MB or more of installed memory. IPDS should function normally with the extra memory. For all other 900.40 Firmware errors, contact technical support.
