Where to find PSM maintenance and attach a printer adapter to adapter.
Printer Systems (PRINT - NA/ATS)
Printing Systems Manager (PSM)
I'm working on a new PSM implementation in which there will be AS/400
and RS/6000 clients. The server will drive an IP4005 highlight color. I
need to know the latest PTF's for PSM and PSF/6000 to support this
printer and barcode printing. The printer is ethernet 10BaseT attached.
Is it possible to connect this high speed printer directly to the
RS/6000 through a cable LAN adapter to LAN adapter. I might be confused
but I've heard that it can be done through a cross over cable. If I'm
right, do you know the proper cable configuration for this attachment
or where can I get this info?
Thanks in advance.
The latest ptfs are:
psm.client on AIX 4.1.x and higher = U458750
psm.client on AIX 3.2.5 = U457224
psmgui on AIX 4.1.x and higher = U450496
psmgui on AIX 3.2.5 = U450497
I don't think you can attach the ethernet directly from adapter to
adapter, but I am going to research this. Researching and leaving open.
Yes, you can use a cross over cable to directly connect adapter to
adapter. The closest I can find out is that pins 2 and 3 are the
"cross over". They need to be switched. Sorry I don't have that kind
of information available.
All the psf and psm maintenance ptfs and information ptf's can be found
at the ftp site: service.boulder.ibm.com (22.214.171.124). The PSM
ptfs are in the /aix/fixes/v4/other directory and the PSF ptfs are in
the /printers/products/psfaix/fixes directory. Simply look for the
highest number ptf for the product you are wanting. There are .bff
filesets that are the binary code of the ptf and there are
corresponding .info files that contain information about the ptf
including what version of AIX you are needing.
To get to the site, ftp to service.boulder.ibm.com (or the ipaddress):
Login as "anonymous"
use your e-mail address as a password: firstname.lastname@example.org
Then cd to the directory and do an ls to list the information. Be
sure that you download the files in binary mode (issuing the "bin"
This is where I go to find out what the latest ptfs are.
The PSF ptfs are:
