The Question is:
We are useing VAX4000 100, with VAX/VMS 5.2 version.
The system has DHW42-CA Asynchronous Communication option installed and 4 line
Asynchronous ports cable with modem control. One of the port is connected to
Serial line printer (Some Japanies brand) for continue Alram report printing.
Now Printer is Damage
, So before buy any standard Serial Lineprinter I used windows Hyperterminal
emulator on this port to receive Alarm Data, but I am contineously receivng 3
character Code evey 10 second delay instead of actual data.
Even I used the same Serial port Setting as the Printer has.
Flow control Xon/Xoff
Baud Rate 9600
Data Bits 8
Could you please give Idea what is the reason. And guide us to solve this
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard would have to assume these three character codes
are being generated by the (unspecified) alarm-reporting application.
Without details of the three characters seen and the application that
might be generating these characters, no more specific answer is
possible -- this could conceivably be a device probe of some sort,
looking for the status and accessability of the printer.
