afptrace.let — prints a sample IPDS job formatted for US Letter paper
afptrace.a4— prints a sample IPDS job formatted for A4 paper

The trace files are set up to use the installation default parameters. If
you plan to run the A4 trace instead of the US Letter trace, change the

DocuSP IPDS, you must map a medium to each DocuSP IPDS tray
specified in the IPDS data stream.
For the installation verification jobs, use US Letter or A4 media. Refer to
the DocuSP IPDS on-line help for the specific procedures.

Step 1. Ensure DocuSP IPDS is running and is reporting a status of
DocuSP IPDS Idle.
Step 2. Start the logical printer from the host and verify that it is
Step 3. Send an IPDS print data stream from the host to the DocuSP
