Since the early 1980's, IBM has made firm statements of direction that the future of wide area network printing will be based around IPDS, IBM's proprietary printer protocol. Already a standard for IBM Mainframe users, it is now becoming the standard for AS/400 users.

Most users are simply baffled by the whole IPDS "thang". If you are stil baffled after a good browse here, please call me. Feedback is very much appreciated by Richard Hamilton - Gibbs (me), who can be contacted at, or (800) 537-5577. If you have a contribution to the education section, I would be happy to publish it. Thanks in advance. -Richard
