Panasonic DP-1810F Multifunction machine support?

My office runs an AIX 4.3.3 accounting application.

We are considering the prchase of a Panasonic DP-1810F
printer/copier/fax machine. The Panasonic salesman say his machine can
be set up to work as a printer using AIX. I have my doubts.

Any first hand experience?

1. no /dev/dp with dp-4.0

        I'm trying to set up dp-4.0 on a solaris machine.

        Everything seems to build ok, and install ok.

        When I try to start the daemon,  I get an error saying that
        the device /dev/dp doesn't exisit.

        I've already loaded the modules dp using modload /usr/kernel/drv/dp

        If I put a soft link to this routine, the file type is wrong.

        I don't know how this /dev/dp file is supposed to get created.

        ipconfig dp0 plumb fails also because the file /dev/fp doesn't

        Any suggestions.

        thanks, email preferred.
