The Question is:
I use DCPS V2.0 and setup a print queue for a Konica 7130 in raw TCP mode on
The print job remaind always in "starting" state.
Is this Printer supported by DCPS V2.0 ?
How can i setup the Print - Queue for this Printer?
The Answer is :
Please see the Compaq DECprint Supervisor (DCPS) for OpenVMS Software
Product Description (SPD) for the list of supported printer devices.
SPDs are available via the URL listed in the OpenVMS Frequently Asked
Questions (FAQ), and contain the support details for the product
associated with the particular SPD.
Based on the DCPS V2.2 SPD, this particular printer is not supported.
As a test, define the logical name DCPS$queuename_NO_SYNC and/or set
the printer's language setting to PostScript (vs. automatic or PCL)
(and then restart the queue), as described in the DCPS documentation.
(The definition of this logical name may or may not cause the printer
and DCPS to become somewhat more cooperative.)
Also please see the discussion of third-party peripherals in the
OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), and please see the
discussion of printing and printing topics included here in topic
(1020). Some unsupported devices can work transparently, and some
will require non-trivial efforts to achieve operational status --
if the device can be made to work at all, obviously.
Please ensure the IP stack involved is current, with current ECOs.
Also please ensure your OpenVMS release has the current mandatory
ECOs installed. Again, the OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
has pointers to the ECO tools and related materials.
