SYNOPSIS

lp5250d [OPTIONS] HOSTNAME

DESCRIPTION

lp5250d connects to an AS/400 over TCP/IP and provides a printer session emulating an IBM 3812 printer. The printer session works with scs2ascii and host print transform on the AS/400 to print AS/400 spooled files on a local printer.

To end a printer session, send it a SIGTERM signal with kill(1).

Printing support requires named session support, which is available for most recent versions of OS/400, but is only supplied with V4R3 and later versions. For V3R2, V3R7, V4R1 and V4R2, please see informational APAR II10918.

OPTIONS

Additional lp5250d options are described in the tn5250rc(5) man page.
-u, --user=USER
  run lp5250d as USER
-H, --help display this help and exit
-v, --version
  output version information and exit

EXAMPLES

lp5250d env.DEVNAME=LINPRT1 env.IBMMFRTYPMDL=’*HP4’ as400sys
  Connect to as400sys as the printer LINPRT1, using host print transform on the AS/400 to print to an HP Laserjet or compatible using lpr.
lp5250d env.DEVNAME=LINPRT1 env.IBMMFRTYPMDL=’*OKI184IBM’ outputcommand=’’scs2ascii | lpr -Poki’ as400sys
  Print to an Okidata Microline 184 Turbo on the local print queue named oki’.
lp5250d env.DEVNAME=PSPRT outputcommand=’scs2ps > scs$$.ps’ as400sys
  Convert spooled files into PostScript® files.
