Mainframe telnet test
How can I test RPM Remote Print Manager to see if it is receiving from my Mainframe/Unix without sending a file to RPM?
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 connection is made, verify IP addressing and Remote Queue Name are correct in the Print Queue on Server Side (Sending Side, LPR, Server etc.)
