Bug pass through printing help needed pls

Hi from a newbie

We have set up 2 new IBM servers with AIX5.3

We have 3 Zebra printers with static IP adresses on their own print servers.

I have set the up ok on the system using generic drivers, Zebra do not have a compatible driver for AIX.

We are printing barcodes on these printers.

I have been advised to set up the printers to connect in "pass through" mode but have not been able to find anything on the web to suggest how to do this.

Could anyone advise pls?

Thanx in advance

Pass through generally means don't let the printer do anything other than print what is sent from the host.
To configure your Zebra printers this way you should probably ask Zebra rather than us AIX bods, but you might be lucky and find a member that has used Zebra printers in this way.
I suggest you ask this question on a Zebra forum, if there is such a thing, but keep an eye on this thread because you might be lucky.

Thank you for the reply

I'll have a look for a Zebra forum - or similar.
