IBM PCOMM always prompt for printing. How can I stop it?

Postby sysprog » Fri 10 Jul 2009, 01:58

I am using the IBM personal communications software to connect to the Dezhi system. While logging on, the logon screen is automatically getting printed in my default printer. How can I avoid this?

You need to update the PCOMM configuration file to ignore printing, by adding following section:
Code: Select all
[LT]
IgnoreWCCStartPrint=Y
UndefinedCode=Y
UndefinedDBCSChar=Y


To find your PCOMM configuration file, click menu File, then Save As ..., then you know the location of the configuration files (*.ws).
Use the text editor (Notepad) to add above section.
