Raw print output different from direct printing

Q: RPM Remote Print ManagerĀ® ("RPM") prints differently in Raw print action than directly from the AS/400.

A: One reason that we have seen is that the AS/400 OUTQ going to the RPM may be set up different than the OUTQ going directly to the printer. The AS/400 OUTQ parameters must be identical other than the IP address. All processing must be identical.

To test this, change the OUTQ going directly to the printer to use the IP address of the system running RPM and select a raw print action. Your print jobs should be the same now.

If they are still not the same, verify that you do not have an override print file command associated with your "user profile." This will change the file printing attributes.
