Problem: How do I setup a serial printer on a Digi Serial Server in Unix? I see garbled information after the 5th page.

Solution:
For Digi Port Servers

Loginto the Port Server via telnet (root dbps) .

    set line dev=prn save=on range=port#-port#
    set flow save=on range=port#-port# (Set appropriate flow settings if applicable)

 

In the /etc/rc.d/8/userdef add the following ( replace ttyann with the terminal the printer is connected to):

For software flow control XON/XOFF (CTRL+S CTRL+Q Star & Stop)

    cat < /dev/ttyann > /dev/null&
    ditty ixon ixoff -ixany /dev/ttyann

 

If that does not work use DTR

    cat < /dev/ttyann > /dev/null&
    ditty ctspace -ixon -ixoff -ixany /dev/ttyann

 

For the realport run the MPI and go to Ports and select the port as a PRN and Fbaud ON
