|General Printer Information|
In general most inkjet printers are NOT compatible with the AMS system.
For the ROSI system, plain output should work on virtually any printer, but at rollout time there are some types of output that are specifically designed for a PostScript printer. Most users will NOT need a PostScript compatible printer. In the long term, the goal is to make the applications support both LaserJet type printers and PostScript printers.
In the ROSI system the default printer is set by the Student Information System staff.
In both systems you can also specify the printer to use at the time you request a printout by simply keying in the desired printer name.
It is only jobs that are generated at the central systems (AMS and ROSI) that require a "defined" or "registered" printer.
If a printer was defined for one system and you now wish to use it for the other system then you need do need to send in a second registration.
On the ROSI system, the current central printer is NOT PostScript but there will be a central PostScript printer shortly. At that time you may have to use a special destination to send PostScript output to the central printer.
