    How it the printer setup? Is it via a client access session, LAN? When doing a DSPDEVD what is the Manufacturer type and model setting?
    Is the IP address correct? What is the System driver program setting?

    Printer is a network printer attached via the LAN.

    MFRTYPMDL :  *LEXOPTRAT

    SYSDRVPGM: *HPPJLDRV

    WSCST: *NONE

    All other PC's in the network are using the same IP address and having no problem printing.

    Hmm strange you are using *LEXOPTRAT fot an HP printer.
    We have ours set to *IBM4317. I think this may be the issue. Are there other HP printers on your system defined with the *LEXOPTRAT ?

    Tried *IBM4317 but still does not print (pending status)

    IBM printer guide N1019534 (pg. 21) shows:

    Printer Data Stream: HP PCL3 enhanced (PCL3e) 

                                      host based - Y

                                       PDT file - N/A

                                       MFRTYPMDL for HPT -*LEXOPTRAT

                                                                              *HP520

                                       LPR-N     PJL-N    SNMP-N    IPP-N

    Let me ask our network people. I'm not sure what else to try at this point. The only other thing I can think of, does it have a unique IP address? I have set a bunch of printers up as Client Access not too many network printers.

    Many HP printers are attached to our IBM i on our WAN.  We have never had success with printers where all the options are N (LPR, PJL, SNMP, IPP).  It might work as a PC-attached printer running a Client Access print session.

    The following is from IBM's user guide for HP printers:
    "The LPR column shows whether a Remote Output Queue or the Send TCP/IP Spooled File ( SNDTCPSPLF or LPR) command can be used to print to this printer when directly connected to the LAN. "
