TEST THE PRINTER
If you have successfully installed the printer, when you take the printer offline and
back online, a message is sent to the Worldspan host requesting the LNIATA or
address of the printer.
Running a Test Ticket
Make sure the printer is online and then go to the Worldspan Screen.
 Make sure HPM is running and the printer is Online.
 In the blue screen you will need to sine on as an agent. If the agent is
signed in then proceed to the next step. If not then sine is as
BSIA1234PM/GS.
 Load the pectab for the printer. This entry is 4G/PTLOAD#E4#LNIATA.
 Once loaded then type 4G/PT-ZDIAG#LNIATA (LNIATA = Printer
Address).
 A test ticket should then be issued on the printer. If all the settings are
OK and correct ask the agent if they have a ticket they could issue before
leaving the site to make sure the customer is happy.
