Oleksiy, The HP PJL driver support will only work with printers that support
PCL5e. Check out the printer technical reference manual to see if it supports
PCL (may be a feature you need to install) and what level of PCL it supports if
You may want to try the SNMP printer driver support, although I'm not sure the
4247 will support SNMP. Check out the AS/400 Software knowledge database for
trouble shooting/attaching LAN printers.
