Cut Sheet Emulation Select this option to print on continuous forms as though you were printing on cut-sheet forms. Sheets are divided in half using an imaginary line that is parallel to the edge of the form. Each resulting "half sheet" is treated as if it were a whole sheet running through a cut-sheet printer.

None implies the cut-sheet emulation is not enabled.

Normal Left-to-Right  allows the print data to be placed on the left half-sheet first and then the right half-sheet. The left half-sheet is closest to the operator. The physical orientation of the data is based on the lower-left corner of the paper as viewed from the operator's viewpoint.

Normal Right-to-Left allows the print data to be placed on the right half-sheet first and then the left half-sheet. The right half-sheet is furthest from the operator. The physical orientation of the data is based on the lower-left corner of the paper as viewed from the operator's viewpoint.

Inverted Left-to-Right allows the print data to be placed on the left half-sheet first and then the right half-sheet. The left half-sheet is furthest from the operator. The physical orientation of the data is based on the upper-right corner of the paper as viewed from the operator's viewpoint. This mode is the "upside down" version of the Normal Left-to-Right mode.

Inverted Right-to-Left allows the print data to be placed on the right half-sheet first and then the left half-sheet. The right half-sheet is closest to the operator. The physical orientation of the data is based on the upper-right corner of the paper as viewed from the operator's viewpoint. This mode is the "upside down" version of the Normal Right-to-Left mode.

Device Address This entry specifies the 2-digit hexadecimal channel address which includes the device address.
Notes:
  1. In simplex mode, only one device address is required.

    In dual simplex mode, each printer requires a unique device address. Printer 1 requires an even number (for example, X'30'); Printer 2 requires the next consecutive number (for example, X'31').

  2. The duplex system does not require a unique number. It can use either of the addresses used for dual simplex Printer 1 or dual simplex Printer 2. However, it is often easier from an operational viewpoint to assign duplex a separate address (so the duplex and simplex printers look like unique devices to the operating system). The general convention in this case is to assign the duplex system the next consecutive address (even) after the address for simplex Printer 2.

    For example, if you define Printer 1 in dual simplex as X'30', you should then define Printer 2 in dual simplex as X'31', and, optionally, define the complete system in duplex as X'32 '.

  3. The device addresses specified above must match the device addresses defined to the host PSF software, and in the case of S/390 hosts, the I/O device definitions.

Note:
Select Edit... or Install... to access the following items:
TCP Port This entry specifies the TCP socket address of the attachment.
Notes:
  1. In dual simplex mode, each printer requires a unique port. If you use the default value of 5001 for simplex Printer 1, the InfoPrint Solutions Company recommends using 5002 as the value for simplex Printer 2.
  2. The duplex printing system must have a single unique port number. It can use either of the TCP port numbers specified for simplex Printer 1 or simplex Printer 2. However, it is often easier from an operational viewpoint to assign duplex a separate TCP port number. If 5001 and 5002 are used for simplex Printer 1 and simplex Printer 2, the InfoPrint Solutions Company recommends that the duplex system be assigned TCP port number 5003.
  3. The TCP Port numbers specified in the printer configuration must match the Port numbers assigned in the host PSF system.
