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.

for secure printing - SENSITIVE DATA - , Your organisation will have to provide a secure physical location
and enforce rules for the proper sysout routing

for lost sysout the only way is to educate users

Yes, that was my first anwser to my boss, but here I am looking for a solution. That is not a valid solution.

Like I said, it is not a matter of sensitive data. They want to have the same funcionality that is on windows. I know that there is a couple of companies offering a complex solution, what it is not the case, also I know that can be made with XPAF or at list is what Xerox said, but no idea of how will be work or affect our system, so I think could be some option to do it and must be throuth JCL.

PD: Can you put it again on JCL.
