Print Device File for HP5si

By lanzoni ·
Does anyone have a print device file for an HP5si, using Netware 4.11? Have tried HP and Novell's site to no avail, and phone call to HP yielded "we don't have one."

The file is Hp5siPCL.pdf

I appreciate any help.

Maybe someone here has created one and could send it to you. PDF files are a just a small "database" that gives the control/escape codes for some functions on the printer. Because windows print drivers have these capabilites no printer manufacturers seem to bother making them. I have built several using the printdef and printcon utilities that initialize the page orientation and printer font & size. We need them to use with NWSAA and HostPrint for printing mainframe reports in specific formats. If you know what functions you need, get a PCL reference and you can build your own. The Novell utilities that create PDF files will also let you view the contents of the ancient ones shipped with Netware.
Good luck in your search. Don't be scared to try building your own. At worst you waste some time & paper.
