Help needed with PCI (AIX-Access for DOS users) printing

Help needed with PCI (AIX-Access for DOS users) printing

Post by Fred Huc » Wed, 18 Sep 1991 20:48:59

Hello netters!

I have a big problem...
We are using PCI to access and share AIX partitions from DOS.
On the DOS side we use PC-Interface V.3.1.1 from Locus Comp., on the
AIX side 3005 is running. We are not able to print from DOS side.
After assigning LPT1 to a AIX print queue via the DOS "printer" command
and executing dir > lpt1 (or dir > prn) in DOS for a short time a file
named /tmp/pci[some characters] appeares on the AIX side, but nothing else

Desperately seeking for any help...

P.S. We also have PCI for another Unix host (HP9000/834) where printing works
     without problems.

P.P.S. Anybody knows how to start debugging in PCI? When I change the -D0
       to -DFFFF in /etc/rc.pci, the processes
       /usr/pci/bin/pciconsvr.ip and
       /usr/pci/bin/pcimapsvr.ip are logging to the appropiate files, but
       the pcidossvr is started with -D0 and so don't logs. So I can not
       log the printing process.

1. AIX Access for DOS Users

I am looking for anyone who might have some knowledge
of this product. We are connecting a PS/2 model 70
to our RS/6000 and want to run AIX Access for DOS Users
on it. I followed all the installation instructions
including getting DOS version 3.3 instead of 4.0,
but all I get is the message 'searching for hosts',
(yes it's connected) . The vendor who sold us the
product is not much help.

If this is not the correct news group, please let
me know where to post it !!!

Thank you.
