Configure a Network Printer

Hi Guyz,

We did not configure printers on our SAP system, now we got a requirement to configure a network printer. Could you please determine or provide a link for configuring a network printer (Please dont give help.sap.com as this is very confusing.) This is how i tried,

tcode -> spad -> configuration -> output devices -> change (F8) -> create

output device -> Canon_printer

short name -> Canon

device type -> canon

device class -> standard printer

select tab access method

Host Spool Access Method -> S

Host printer : (what should i give here)

Destination host: ip address or name of network printer

Could you please determine whether this procedure is correct or anything we have to do. Our O.S. is UNIX & DB is Oracle.

Thanks

    Rajendran,

    I guess the procedure is correct but You have specified

    Host Spool Access Method -> S

    I think you should use assess method as " U " i.e. for Printing using a remote UNIX server or Microsoft Windows PC.

    and

    Host printer : < It is the printer name on the remote host , Note : It is case sensitive >

    Cheers!

      Hi

      Everything is fine except the font from the print out. Where can we set the font we need. The font which the printer is printing is very small. We are unable to read it. How can we increase the size of font.

      Thanks
