Mixing UNIX and OpenVMS Printing Forms?

» close window

The Question is:

How can I use in Tru64 Unix printforms and setup modules defined in OpenVMS on
 print queues?
So OpenVMS will be the printserver and the Tru64 system will print a file on a
 form defined in OpenVMS

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard is not familiar with Tru64 UNIX nor its printing
  implementation -- further, the OpenVMS Wizard would use a network
  printer, and would tend to print directly to the target printer.
  For information on OpenVMS and its printing mechanisms, and on device
  control libraries and forms, please see the various topics starting
  at topic (1020) -- that topic has pointers both to the LPR/LPD and
  telnet server information (you'll need these servers configured,
  as you will want to receive print jobs) and pointers to the forms
  and device control information.
