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".
11
IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide iSeries and AS/400 LAN Printing Using the Printer Standard Network Port or MarkNet Internal 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: 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).
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. 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.
12
IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide iSeries and AS/400 LAN Printing Using the Printer Standard Network Port or MarkNet Internal Print Server
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 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. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu >
IPDS MENU > EMULATION > BARCODE > Bar Code Size.
7
Refer to Chapter 5. Printer Messages and Problems on page 31 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.

Save/submit any changes and return to the Ready screen.
9
To verify the new print server settings, print a Network Setup Page. Using the control panel MENU/Menus,
select Reports > Network 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".
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: 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).
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.
19
IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide PSF/MVS LAN Printing Using the Standard Network Port or Internal Print Server
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. 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 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. Using the control panel MENU/Menus, select Option Card Menu >
IPDS MENU > EMULATION > BARCODE > Bar Code Size.
8
Refer to Chapter 5. Printer Messages and Problems on page 31 for additional problem solutions.

Problem 1: Printer remains in Ready and messsage 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.

Problem 4: IPDS memory exception
Sometimes an IPDS memory exception is reported to the host.
Solution to Problem 4
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" in the printer menu to allow permanent downloaded resources from PostScript
and PCL jobs to be deleted. 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.
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
33
IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide Printer Messages and Problems
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 5: 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 PostScript and PCL jobs do not print.
Solution to Problem 5
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
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
34
IPDS Printer and Host Setup Guide Printer Messages and Problems
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 5) 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.
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.
35

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
9100 or some other unsupported port number is specified as the IPDS communications port on the host. The
printer supports port 5001 and 9600 for IPDS printing. Change the port number on the host to 5001 or 9600.
The 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
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.
