Defining the printer to the host:
This appendix contains instructions, prerequisites, and some
sample printer parameters for defining your TCP/IP-attached
printer to your host, in each PSF environment.
This section discusses the parameters and procedures required
to define a printer to your host, followed by examples of the
parameters required for a Token Ring connection using TCP/IP
in a MVS environment.
NOTE: The MVS examples shown are for a Token Ring
connection. However, the same parameters will be required for
an Ethernet connection using TCP/IP.
On an MVS/ESA or OS/390 host system, you must have the
following software to print through PSF on a TCP/IP-attached
PSF/MVS Version 3, release 2.0, with APAR OW 15599 or
MVS Scheduler APAR OW 12236 to support two new
PRINTDEV keywords: IPADDR and PORTNO
TCP/IP Version 3, release 1 or higher, installed and
configured on MVS.
You must have these prerequisites installed on your host before
you begin the configuration process described in this chapter.
Ensure that the manuals for the proper software releases are
