Pinging the printer
– MVS
Installation Planning Guide
6. Test the printer to ensure it prints from the MVS host
Test the printer by one of the following methods:
Send a job from the host through PSF to print on the printer.
Ping the printer from your MVS host to ensure MVS can
establish a connection with the TCP/IP-attached printer.
To ping the printer from the MVS host, enter one of the following
commands:
At your MVS host, enter the following command at the TSO
prompt or from the Interactive System Productivity Facility
(ISPF), menu 6:
PING ip-address
Enter the following command from any ISPF command line:
TSO ping ip-address
ip-address specifies the internet protocol (IP) address of the
printer.
If the ping is successful:
Table F-9. Example of a successful ping – MVS
EZA0458I Ping V3R1: Pinging host 9.99.12.33
(Use ATTN to interrupt)
EZA 0463I PING: Ping #1 response took 0.084 seconds.
Successes so far = 1.
NOTE: A successful ping usually indicates that the MVS system
can communicate with the printer. However, you could receive a
successful ping even if the IP address of the TCP/IP-attached
printer is a duplicate of another IP address.
If PSF is unable to establish a network connection with the TCP/
IP-attached printer, or if PSF output for this printer prints
elsewhere, follow these steps to determine whether the IP
address of the printer is unique:
1. Power off the printer.
2. Wait at least five minutes for TCP/IP to clear the Address
Resolution Protocol (ARP) tables.
