The Question is:
DS-10 OpenVMS 7.3-2, TCP/IP 5.4, DCPS 2.3
Xerox 6250 (DX) colour laser printer
How can this printer be optimally used through
DCPS. Should it be disguised as a Phaser 850 (also a postscript 3 printer) or
Thanks in advance
The Answer is :
The Xerox 6250 printer is not supported by DCPS, so it will be run
as an unrecognized-type printer. The OpenVMS Wizard suspects this
printer might work this way, although selection by tray name and
native PCL printing will not be possible.
The OpenVMS FAQ describes a method of customizing DCPS device control
modules, if the printer does not function as an unrecognized-type
device. You could also define the DCPS$queuename_PRODUCT_NAME logical
name attempt to disguise the printer as a supported model, and
preferably as a printer that is operationally similar.
None of these techniques are supported, but may work if the printer
does not behave correctly as an unrecognized-type printer. Again,
please review the FAQ and the DCPS documentation.
For the printers supported by DCPS, please see the DCPS Software
Product Description (SPD). Pointers to SPDs are in the FAQ.
