Parallel Port Device Type?

» close window

The Question is:

How I can change device (printer) type for parallel port device (LRA0:) from
 LP11 to LA180?

The Answer is :

  It would appear there is an error within the SET PRINTER/LA180 command.
  (Please contact the support center for assistance with this error.)
  That written, have you tried swapping the printer and simply trying the
  printing operation?
  The OpenVMS Wizard would tend to replace parallel port printers with
  network printers -- parallel port printing is problematic, at best.
