Q: How can I test RPM Remote Print Manager® ("RPM") to see if it is receiving from my Mainframe/Unix without sending a file to RPM?
A: Perform a Telnet Test from Mainframe/Unix with the following steps.
From the Emulation Terminal, Type Telnet (space) IP Address (space) 515
The TELNET command will cause the following entries in RPM:
Information: Accepted client from 192.168.1.3, port 1306
Information: Received data on socket 9, 5 bytes
Information: Close on socket 9
Information: Closing transaction for 9
This verifies that a connection was made to RPM at the LPD:515 port.
If the connection is not made, the OS will provide a message "Contact the System Administrator."
If the connection is made, verify IP addressing and Remote Queue Name are correct in the Print Queue on Server Side (Sending Side, LPR, Server, etc.)
