Want to add Versatek Plotter as PARALLEL 6185-2 plotter
Customer is trying to add Versatek Plotter a IBM 6185-2 color
plotter and print queue.
Env: AIX 4.1.4
Customer attempting to setup the plotter as PARALLEL and cannot.
In smitty, the only choice for the interface is RS-232 for the
IBM 6185-2 plotter.
What the customer should have been told to do is:
1. Add the plotter "device" as Other parallel printer.
2. Then add a queue to the device as a 6182-2.
This can be done at AIX 4, by simply adding a queue to a file,
where the file is /dev/lp4 (the device name for the "other" plotter.
Then when prompted for printer type use 6182-2.
At AIX 3.2, the customer would specify *lp4 for the device name
and then he would be prompted for the printer type. Here he
could enter 6182-2.
