The Question is:
You may advise me if appropriate (I hope), or point me to a saleman if
necessary, but they'd need to understand the VMS requirement. We are running
a private, internal, isolated OpenVMS V7.2 system in order to support a
private, 10+ year old application
which requires and uses Motif. We wish to now utilize the print capability
from that application. It requires Postscript support. Knowing you are not a
printer wizard, but because of my VMS requirement, I am looking for your quick
advice and/or a list
of which of your currently offered printers will best deliver a robust,
commercial quality result, quickly and with minimum failures. The kicker is
I'd like it available with 3 NIC cards or an equivalent solution so we can
also print from two other priva
te, isolated, internal Intel/Microsoft networks. Those would be prints through
standard Microsoft protocols. Thank you for your time and attention.
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard would encourage direct contact with your
HP reseller or HP representative. The OpenVMS Wizard is not
a printer wizard.
Without knowing specific printing requirements and specific
network partitioning requirements, no recommendation is possible.
(That OpenVMS is printing to a printer is not nearly as relevent
as is the printer speed, costs and related matters, as well as
the network requirements)
Some HP printers do allow three network interface cards (NICs),
including the LaserJet 9000. Many printers allow one or
possibly two network cards. Multiple printers and firewalls are
other configuration options, of course.
Again, that OpenVMS might need to print to the printer appears
entirely secondary to the printing and network requirements.
