AS400 and Perle Controller Problems

By tglass ·
We are currently using an AS400 in another office for EDI. The situation now is that we use a Perle Controller to control our printer and the Perle is always going down. The printer is an Printek 8003 Forms Master. Is there a way to setup this type of printer on our NT network so that the AS400 can print to it without the Perle.

First: Be sure to find a Windows driver for your printer.
I suggest you to try emulate a printer using REFLECTION for the As/400. (you can download a free evaluation copy..) (less than 170$)
You will need to install the printer in LPT1 of any Windows workstation with IP working.
Turn AS/400 to AUTOCFG
Install Reflection software, select printer via Telnet, specify the IP as/400 address and the give a name to the As400 Queue (a new one!) That?s all!
Click the printer Icon and wait for the Ready message.
You can customize almost ANY printer parameter (cpi, density, font, orientation, etc).
From windows Panel you can specify your Printek 8003 driver or a Generic text only one.

Hope it will be usefull.

Thank?s for rating my time!

You would think that the con artists that post "If you solve a question, you should close it" would be disqualified from recieving points. If anyone else feels these freeloaders should be disqualified please give techrepublic the feedback on this matter. They are stealing points from people who try to give valid answers.
