Printing

Printing is one of Winet’s strongest points. We supply both robust printing methods and highly configurable options to accommodate the widest variety of needs expressed by our clients. The printing is not a case of “one size fits all”. Therefore it would be very valuable for a system administrator or support person to read through this whole section.

  • No printer installed
  • Stand alone print servers:
    • LPD/LPR – Popular printing method (from the Unix world)
    • Print Server (Socket printing) – a.k.a. IP printing
    • 3287 printer3287printer – for session bound printing from an IBM mainframe
  • Developer’s notes on formatted printing
    • Merge printing for developers of formatted printing
    • RTF notes for developers of formatted printing
    • Inet Format escape sequences for developers of formatted printing

Winet 6.04 Released

Many new features have been added:

  • Inet3270 adds the IND$FILE file transfer protocol for IBM mainframes.
  • Inet5250 emulation had major improvements and was expanded to include more structures and facilities.
  • Direct printing allows you to add static header and footer files with data or commands to be sent to the printer before and/or after print jobs. It can be used similar to mail merge or template applications.
  • The Copy&Paste in terminals now include an AutoCopy option that will automatically put marked text in the clipboard.
  • Inet3270 adds “session bound” or SCS printing for the 3287-printer with improved setup facilities. When opening an Inet3270 terminal it can automatically load and connect the 3287 printer.
  • For additional security, the following facilities may be disabled by system managers in terminal emulators: All drop down menus, the toolbar (or only selected buttons on the toolbar), the right-click menu, Copy, Paste, ScreenPrint (not the Windows PrintScreen), Write Log, Trace, Script and Read input file.
  • Lots of small improvements in the user interface and a few bug fixes.
