To Print To LaserJet 8000dn Tray 3 From OpenVMS

Hello,

We are trying to print from tray 3 of an HP LaserJet 8000dn printer, from an Alpha server ES40 running OpenVMS 7.3-2 running the Multinet v4.4 tcp stack. We are trying to do this using the appropriate PCL code but are not certain what code that is.

The HP PCL 5 code documents list the tray 3 PCL code as &l5H. We have created a setup module using this PCL code, inserted this module in the device library that our printer queue uses, and created a form using this setup module. The printer queue uses that form.

When we then print to that printer queue, the HP LaserJet 8000dn reports a paper jam error on tray 3. That happens consistently.

When we try to print from tray 3 of this printer from a Windows PC, it prints from tray 3 with no problem.

Has anyone out there had success printing from tray 3 of an HP LaserJet 8000dn from an OpenVMS platform running Multinet?

Have you tried using DCPS, which seems to support he LJ8000?
To ease testing you can also include the escape sequences into a testfile together with some text.
