Hi, In our shop, we need to get a user access to take printout from AS400 to a printer that is outside our office network. We proposed to create a virtual printer session and download the print output which can be printed in any printer to which the machine is connected. However, during this exploration I found that Remote printer can also not be configured to print in another network. Then what is the use of having Remote printers. We can very well configure all the printer as LAN printers with IP address in AS400. In fact, we do not have any *RMT printer in our AS400 device. So, I want to know how and when remote printer is better and is required to be configured. What is the basic difference between a LAN printer and remote printer and in which scenario's the two should be used. Please explain it in details. This would help me expand my knowledge. Thanks in advance. Regards Sharmistha

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

this is quite a tricky task.  why not have the user use VPN when outside the office, then have him connect to the office network?
