Secure Print from Mainframe

Post by adabasdeveloper » Thu Jan 18, 2018 10:41 pm

Hi all,

I have some users that want to do secure print from the mainframe.

I explain, what they really want is just to send the prints jobs and holding on the printer until they will be next to the printer to get it. I mean, it is not a security problem, they say that they are loosing prints a lot of times, because people goes to the printer and takes everything that is printed. So now, a human issue evolve to IT problem.

We are printing throug JCL from a Natural/Adabas environment, with the usual IBM PSF. I was searching but I cannot find even other developers with the same issue. The only thing I found is an utility from Xerox (XPAF) that it is not implement on the system (and it is not going to be). Also I found some references to print throug FTP but nothing clear.

If someone have a solution It will save my day.

Thank you in advance.
