Host receivers

A host receiver provides the point of connection between InfoPrint Manager and a host system. The host system connects with the host receiver and downloads print jobs.

There are two kinds of host receivers: DPF host receivers and MVS Download receivers. You create the type of host receiver you need, depending on the host print method you select. Both host receivers receive print jobs from the MVS system and submit them to InfoPrint Manager.

Note: In InfoPrint Manager, the term Download for z/OS refers to both the Download for z/OS feature of PSF for z/OS or the AFP Download Plus for z/OS feature of PSF for z/OS.
