Selecting a DSS for printing using MVS Download, DPF, or from a combination of PC-based applications and host systems

If you send jobs to this destination from both PC-based applications and host systems using DPF or MVS Download, use Selecting a DSS for printing using MVS Download, DPF, or from a combination of PC-based applications and host systems to see which type of destination fits your needs.

Selecting a DSS for printing using MVS Download, DPF, or from a combination of PC-based applications and host systems

If the data stream that your host system and applications send to InfoPrint Manager is: AFP, ASCII, DBCS ASCII, line data, PCL4, PCL5, PCL5c, PCL6, PS, PDF, IPDS (through DPF)1 PCL4, PCL5, PCL5c and PCL6 PS only
and the data stream that you send to your printer is: IPDS PCL4, PCL5, or PCL5c, PCL6 or PPDS2 PCL PS
Create this kind of actual destination: PSF (TCP/IP) PSF (other driver or command) PSF (other driver or command) OR any of the destination types listed in Selecting a DSS for printing from PC-based applications. One of the destination types listed in Selecting a DSS for printing from PC-based applications.
    Note:
  1. DPF can only submit jobs to PSF printers. MVS Download can submit jobs to any of the printer types listed.
  2. You can only print PPDS on a non-Windows system, for example, by sending the PPDS data stream to an AIX system
