Blank pages (print) in HTPE

Host Controlled Printing Option in HTPE

Q – When I select to print my accounting report to my local printer, I get blank sheets of paper instead of the report. How can I get my report to print correctly?

A – Your report needs to pass through the Windows print drivers so your printer can properly interpret and format your report with the embedded printer codes contained in the print job. Access Properties, Settings. Click the Terminal Setup button, and check the box for “Use Windows drivers for emulator printing.”

NOTE: – This option is only available with emulators (e.g., VT100)
that support host controlled printing. If the checkbox is not found under your selected emulator’s setup button, that terminal emulator does not support host controlled printing.
