Wol,

Thanks for the idea. Looks promising but we're on a Unix server. Is there a
way to refer to the local printers across operating systems? My SETPTR
documentation refers to mode 2 and the DEVICE setting as sending output to
the Unix special file. Can the shared printer be defined as a unix special
file without setting up a network print queue?

What I'd do ...

This is UV, but I got the impression that UD might well work the same
way ...

A lot of our printers, rather than saying "AT DEVICE" in the SETPTR
statement, say "AT \\windows\sharename". So each printer is set up on
the local pc to which it is attached, and the UV server knows nothing
about it at the Windows level (we have UV/NT).

Cheers,
Wol

Hi,

We use Unidata (v5.2) on a DEC/Compaq/HP Alpha under Tru64 Unix (v5.0a).
Most of our users connect to our Unidata system via terminal emulation
software (SmartTerm) from Windows-based PCs. Some of those users
function as
point-of-sale terminals. We're now trying to integrate credit card
validation via the internet directly from those work stations. We're
still
in test mode, but most of this seems to working OK. One remaining issue
is
printing the CC receipt. We would like the receipts to print on CC
receipt
printers attached to the workstation as either parallel or serial
printers.
We'd rather not set up print queues for all of these. Any ideas on how
to
accomplish this?
