The Question is:
a) Can this printer support serial port?
b) What other files should I change in the OS?
The Answer is :
Please reverse the process -- please connect a serial terminal or a
terminal emulator to the designated serial port, and (attempt to) log
into OpenVMS using the serial port. Please verify that the wiring is
valid, and that the device -- the terminal, in this case -- and the
port and the connection are all functional. Then and only then start
debugging a connection to a printer.
Please see the OpenVMS FAQ for details on the wiring pinouts involved.
Please also see the FAQ for details on the serial port configurations
typically found on various AlphaServer and AlphaStation systems.
Please move off this hardware release, and please move to a supported
maintenance release or full OpenVMS release, such as V7.2-2 or V7.3.
