Installing a Printer on a Terminal Server (LAT Supported)

Make the terminal server known to OpenVMS

Connect to the server and change port settings

Create a LAT Port and Test the Basic Connection

sr $
ur mcr latcp
sr LATCP>
ur create port LTA123
sr LATCP>
ur set port LTA123: /node=yada99 /port=port_5 /noque
sr LATCP>
ur show node
sr Action: node characteristics are displayed;
ur Action: make sure outgoing connections are enabled;
use "set node /conn=both" (or "set node /conn=outgoing_only")
to enable.
ur exit

ur print filename.ext (or "print/que=queue_name filename.ext" if you used a different queue name)
sr Action: your document is printed on the desired machine
