2 What is RPM Remote Print Manager? How is AS/400 and Mainframe printing enhanced with RPM? How does RPM work? –Queue Management and Queue Types What are some typical environments where RPM is needed?

3 RPM Remote Print Manager (RPM) is a complete LPD printing solution. –RPM is designed for Windows® platforms allowing Windows users to customize and control the processing of print jobs received over a TCP/IP network from host systems including mainframes, AS/400s, UNIX and Linux, and other Windows systems. What is RPM? the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  What is RPM?AS/400 and MainframeQueue ManagementTypical SituationsHow does RPM work?

4 RPM is the only complete LPD print server software designed specifically for Windows® platforms. RPM uses Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) to receive print jobs from local or remote locations. RPM allows users to customize and control the processing and output of print jobs. RPM can accept print data from AS/400s, mainframes, UNIX, Linux, and other Windows systems. RPM combines queue management functionality and Windows resources to create an ideal printing environment. What is RPM? the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  What is RPM?AS/400 and MainframeQueue ManagementTypical SituationsHow does RPM work?

5 Transitioning from centralized, mainframe or mid- range legacy-based document processing and printing to on-demand documents at the point of need. Mainframe applications are hobbled by the print codes that don’t work with newer network and PC printers. –The cost-effectiveness of off-loading mainframe- generated documents to network servers and remote PC-compatible printers, the web, and content management systems provides immediate measurable paybacks. It is simply less expensive to print locally than to ship pre-printed and packaged paper. Information flows more freely if local printers are capable of printing mainframe created documents when and where they are required. AS/400 and Mainframe Printing the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  What is RPM?AS/400 and MainframeQueue ManagementTypical SituationsHow does RPM work?

6 Network and PC-based printers typically are multi- functional but don’t process mainframe generated code unless it’s converted to readable print languages. Conversion of mainframe printer data streams is far more economical than re-coding mainframe applications or replacing the high-volume workhorse printers. Data conversion technology is necessary to integrate and include IBM mainframe-generated documents into the Client/Server Windows 2000 networks now being installed. Furthermore, customers maintain greater control of the document generation process. Implementing this conversion capability with RPM is easy to do.

7 RPM is a PC-based TCP/IP print server application for Windows® platforms expanding printing capabilities by giving users more control, formatting options, and file management advantages over traditional network printing.

8 RPM Remote Print Manager provides a variety of options to meet the needs in any network printing environment. –One computer with RPM allows printing to many print devices. –Remove excess equipment from the office (cables, boxes, etc.). –Flexibility to change fonts and margins produces legible reports. –Send printouts to the point of need. –Remove the need for confusing FTP processes.

9 Queue Management is an integral part of RPM. –Understanding queue types and managing queues is one of the many features that set RPM apart from other LPD servers, hardware or software. –Each queue has its own setup information. Queues operate independently of each other. Each queue has its own printer setup and queue type. You can configure separate queues for the same printer, each with different characteristics. –RPM offers three types of print queues: Text Queue Raw Queue Filter Queue Queue Management the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  What is RPM?AS/400 and MainframeQueue ManagementTypical SituationsHow does RPM work? Brooks Internet Software, Inc.   (208) www.brooksnet.com RPM Remote Print Manager 

10 Queue Management Options the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  The TEXT QUEUE receives print data from a host system and then modifies the data to print to any Windows print device. The TEXT QUEUE can modify lines or characters per inch, change fonts, suppress banner pages, inset characters, and even add printer finishing functions. The RAW QUEUE receives print jobs from the host system and sends the data directly to the printer. The RAW QUEUE includes enhanced features and translation options such as converting EBCDIC, SCS and ASA to ASCII. The FILTER QUEUE receives print data from a host system then saves or writes the files to disk. The FILTER QUEUE can integrate print data with third party software for user customization.

11 The RPM TEXT Queue allows RPM to adapt text to any Windows® printer using the print driver. RPM handles many text formats intelligently, while providing a simple interface. Text Queue the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  What is RPM?AS/400 and MainframeQueue ManagementTypical SituationsHow does RPM work? The formatting options found in the TEXT Queue are a key reason network administrators and other IT professionals make the switch from their existing print server to RPM. Brooks Internet Software, Inc.   (208) www.brooksnet.com RPM Remote Print Manager 

12 Text Queue Features the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  Select appropriate code page for international fonts Choose from millimeters, pica, inches, or point Scales font & character width appropriately Scales font & line spacing appropriately Supports overprint Wrap lines instead of dropping characters Eliminate blank pages No RPM banner page generated Used with “fit lines per page” to set form feed Brooks Internet Software, Inc.   (208) www.brooksnet.com RPM Remote Print Manager 

13 The Text Queue also allows choices for font selection, font style, and font size. Text Queue Font Selection the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  What is RPM?AS/400 and MainframeQueue ManagementTypical SituationsHow does RPM work? Brooks Internet Software, Inc.   (208) www.brooksnet.com RPM Remote Print Manager 

14 The Text Queue can also apply any of the Windows® fancy print driver’s page finishing options to the job. Text Queue Output Control the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  What is RPM?AS/400 and MainframeQueue ManagementTypical SituationsHow does RPM work? –This includes duplexing, stapling, hole punching, water marks, n-Up, and much more. Brooks Internet Software, Inc.   (208) www.brooksnet.com RPM Remote Print Manager 

15 RPM can send data directly to the printer using pass-through printing. Few software print servers can accomplish this without any modification of the data. Raw Queue the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  What is RPM?AS/400 and MainframeQueue ManagementTypical SituationsHow does RPM work? The RAW queue acts as if the printer is locally attached to the mainframe. Enhanced features and translations such as EBCDIC, SCS and ASA to ASCII can be performed if necessary.

16 Raw Queue Features the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  Resolves UNIX files not printing correctly by converting “line feed” into “carriage return/line feed” Supports inserting a page separator between jobs Brooks Internet Software, Inc.   (208) www.brooksnet.com RPM Remote Print Manager 

17 Filter processing in RPM provides the means to integrate print data with third party software and custom processing, while continuing to use the established printing services in your business system. Filter Queue the power to print what you want, when you want, where you want.  What is RPM?AS/400 and MainframeQueue ManagementTypical SituationsHow does RPM work? Simply stated, the goal is to save the print job on disk and if needed, open the file in another software application.
