Does RPM handle AFPDS files?

Q: Does RPM Remote Print Manager® ("RPM") support printing AFPDS files generated from an AS/400 or System 390?

A: The AS/400 will convert AFPDS data streams via Host Print Transform for AS/400 printer emulations. An RPM raw type queue will pass the converted data directly to the printer bypassing the Windows print driver.

ExcelliPrint® does handle AFPDS files, please visit ExcelliPrint's IPDS Printing home page. ExcelliPrint gives you the power to print IPDS to any Windows-based printer.

System 390 supports the AFPDS conversion via the Infoprint system. RPM can then pass the converted data directly to the Windows printer through an RPM raw type queue.
