Passthru mode

Passthru sends the job to the InfoPrint 2000 through a special socket connection that passes the job to InfoPrint Manager spooler without ripping the job. To submit a job as passthru, you must make sure that one of these attributes has been specified:

job-ripped-by-server=false
doc-formats-ripped-at-dest=postscript
doc-formats-ripped-at-dest=pcl

The jobs-ripped-by-server attribute is a job attribute that takes precedence over the doc-formats-ripped-at-dest printer attribute.

When sending a job to the printer in passthru mode, you must not specify any of these attributes:

  • base-printer

  • chars
