  • Page 45: Printing

    The following information will help you understand how to enable and print using FIFO printing. The various printing utilities that are available are also outlined in this section as well as using TIFF orientation, MICR, and VIPP. First In/First Out (FIFO) Printing When jobs are printed in the same order in which they are received, this is FIFO printing.
  • Page 46: Enable/Disable Fifo Job Scheduling

    • If the queue that is set to use FIFO is not currently releasing jobs to the printer, then the jobs may not appear in the correct FIFO order. Select [Job Manager] and then select the Options menu. Select [Redisplay] to view the jobs in correct FIFO order.

  • Page 48: Ascii And Pcl Printing Utility

    Printing With FIFO Job Scheduling disabled, the Controller will schedule the jobs for print as soon as they complete their “Receiving Data” status in Job Manager. Therefore, Job ID 2 will be scheduled for print before Job ID 1 if Job ID 2 goes “Pending” before Job ID 1. The following table illustrates an example of FIFO Job Scheduling.
  • Page 49: Setpclontrol Utility

    System Guide As an alternative, ASCII files can be identified as PCL and sent through the PCL decomposer. The PCL decomposer does provide some additional capabilities that can be used to print ASCII files as desired. To force ASCII files to use the PCL decomposer, change the file format in Job Manager.
  • Page 50: Set Lp/Lprcopycount Utility

    Printing • This utility changes the PCL decomposer default line termination. This utility should not be used in a mixed PCL and ASCII environment. This is because PCL data streams can include another line termination escape sequence. Such a job will change the line termination setting again (possibly without the user's knowledge).
  • Page 51: Socket Gateway Configuration Utility: Setvpsoption

    System Guide Socket Gateway Configuration Utility: setVPSoption This utility allows you to configure the two ports of the Socket Gateway to either remove the echo commands (VPS) or leave the data unaltered (NONVPS). If you are a DT61xx or DT65/75/90 non-LCDS customer, configure both ports as NONVPS.

  • Page 53: Using Vipp

    System Guide Using VIPP To specify a job as a VIPP job, a start string is required. The required start string can be automatically added using DocuSP functionality. This can be completed using the Command Line Client, Queue Manager, and Job Properties. To implement the VIPP Start feature, perform the following: 1.

  • Page 66: Font Substitution

    Fonts NOTE: Marking a font for "permanent" downloading in your application is not supported. • Optional or soft fonts Downloading fonts each time you print will increase the size of the file and result in a longer transmission time. If your print jobs regularly require a font that is not a resident font, you may request to have it installed as an optional font at the DocuSP controller.
