Creating a PSF TCP/IP printer from the InfoPrint Manager Web Administration Interface

To create a PSF TCP/IP printer (Actual Destination) for an IPDS printer, complete these steps:

  1. In the left-hand Objects panel, click the Printers icon.
  2. Click the menu icon and select Create....
  3. For Printer type, select PSF TCP/IP.
  4. In the Name field, enter the name of the printer you want to create.
  5. For Logical destination, enter a name different from the printer Name.
  6. In the TCP/IP Address field, enter the printer hostname or IP address. If you do not have an IPDS printer available, use 127.0.0.2, to create a sample printer.
  7. For Model, select Set by SNMP printer, as long as you have a connection to a real printer. Otherwise, choose a model for your sample printer.
  8. In the Queue field, enter a new queue name.
  9. In the TCP/IP Port filed, enter 5001.
  10. Select CREATE and EDIT.
  11. If the printer is shared by another system that can drive IPDS printers (another InfoPrint Manager server or PSF z/OS) , right-click your printer in the Printers list, go to PropertiesConfiguration, and change the Release Time (Seconds) to 10-60 seconds.
