I have an IBM 6400 that has the ipds emulation software installed. I have another 6400 that has the code v emulation installed. I need to backup the ipds emulation software from one printer and download it to the printer that is using code v, so that I will have two 6400's with the ipds emulation availability. I no longer need the code v. I have downloaded the Printer Management Utility from IBM and I can connect to the printer, and was hoping it would let me backup the software from one printer and restore it to the other printer, but I haven't found a way to do that yet. I would appreciate any help or info on my situation.
I have a IBM 6400 printer in AS 400 system. I want to convert that printer to PC system to print daily to day printing which I can support Window XP and Windows 7.Please let me know the coorrect way to do that and what are the software I need to download.?
The software i think is held in the simm mem. there is a function available to copy these from one stick to another i.e take stick from one printer and install in the ipds printer and copy to it. To access this menu you either hold down the bottom right hand button + the one next to it and switch on printer or it may be the top right + the one next to that. Both of these access different functions i just cant remember the which is which.

Enabling the Emulation Panel
Chrome Canary has received a number of improved mobile emulation tools which can be accessed by enabling the Emulation panel through the Settings panel. To enable:
Open the Settings panel within the DevTools.
Enable "Show 'Emulation' view in console drawer."
Bring up the DevTools console drawer by hitting the Esc key and then select the Emulation panel.
Note: Emulation tools within DevTools were previously contained within an Overrides pane inside the Settings panel. The Emulation panel is the new Overrides pane.
The "Heap Over Flow" error indicates you are basically running out of memory to store graphics commands before a command to print data is issued.
The solution is
1) Windows Printing.
A) Ensure the printers EMULATION setting matches the printer driver uses.
B) If using the T6050 printer driver ensure you have the correct lavel of firmware. The later version of printer driver need to have the latest T6050 firmware installed in the printer.
C) Consider setting the printer EMULATION to EPSON FX then install the EPSON FX100 driver on the Windows Box
Install the IBM Proprinter XL24 driver on the Windows Box and set the printer EMULATION to IBM Proprinter
Using either of these two compatible drivers will 'side step' issues caused by printer firmware / drinter driver compatibility issues as it may be difficult to obtain suitable firmware or drivers due to the age of this device.
2) If you are coding the escape commands yourself you need to check these as they are incorrect if this error is seen
The answer to this depends very much on what sort of system you are using......
If it is a Windows System you can simply install the Windows Printer Driver and use the printer as a normal Windows Printer.
On Unix / Linux you can set the printer up (usualy using CUPS) in this case you can use one of the standard device types and select a corresponding emulation on the printer-
Set the printer to Epson FX emulation and use a Epson 9 Pin printer driver
Set the printer to IBM Proprinter emulation and use an IBM Proprinter priver (9pin)
On the AS400, iSeries, Seriesi you can also use the Epson FX emulation or IBM Emulation and select the corresponding device type on the host system
Other systems may support similar functionality.
You can also send plane text files to the printer, or alternatively program you own escape commands to control print features.
So like I say it depends on the system you are using, perhaps a good place to start is by contacting Support for the Computer Application or System you are using to see if they support Dot Matrix and or Line Printers. It is not possable to give a generic "Covers all Systems" answer, unfortunatly
I'm 75% sure it will, without looking at the postal intelligent mail barcode printing specifications... I will be glad to answer your question, if you can get me the Specs. for the new postal intelligent mail barcode... the other important question is... what is you current IBM 6400-XXX printer configuration? press the print config, then the Start on your printer. 1st Paragraph is all you will need to give me... Worst case, you might need a differenent Emulation program...
(from manual) Changing the Emulation
To change the emulation mode, proceed as follows: 1 Press the MENU key. 2 Press the or key repeatedly until Emulation appears. One of
the emulation modes shown below appears, indicating the current
PCL 6 (default)
KPDL is the Kyocera’s implementation of the PostScript page
description language. 3 Press the ENTER key. A blinking question mark (?) appears. 4 Press the or key repeatedly until the desired emulation mode
appears. 5 Press the ENTER key. 6 Press the MENU key. The message display returns to Ready.
