I've got a Windows 95 PC with IBM iSeries Client Access V4R3 loaded, and need to print to a locally attached Zebra printer as a Virtual Printer from AS400 through a PC5250 emulation session.  I've got a generic/text only printer created, and I'm trying to configure the session to print to the printer, but there's no *WSCST model in the printer models list, as there is in later models of Client Access.  I've got Client Access V4R5, but I'm wary of upgrading the Win95 PC unless I really have to, and I'm not sure if upgrading to that SR would fix the problem.  Has anyone here been able to add a *WSCST printer model in V4R3?

Hi
I did some work a few years ago on a non-branded ascii printer. I based my WCST on the *OKI400 printer.
I know that the zebra has it's own language but have not used on - are you sending special escape characters to control the printing od barcodes erc..

An alternate solution is to to create a print file that is DEVTYPE(*USERASCII) and write the data as an ascii string, then configure the printer as no transform.
