Does anyone know how the heck to set up a Dell printer for as400 printing? (not using an emulator like mocha for local printing)

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

You’ll need to use either software or hardware. Neither are inexpensive. The best solution is at http://www.mpitech.com/ . Now, I have heard some people say they are somehow able to setup print queues that print through the AS/400 which I have never quite understood so I can’t elaborate further. You can ask a AS/400 savvy person that question ok.

Follow this URL for information on how to configure a remote OutQ for the printer. It covers all ASCII printers :

    What printer is it? Does it have network built in? If not you can use an external network adapter (JetDirect or the like). Once you can get it on the network the rest is (usually) fairly straightforward. CRTOUTQ OUTQ(XYZ) RMTSYS(*INTNETADR) RMTPRTQ(*NONE) AUTOSTRWTR(1) CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE(*OTHER) MFRTYPMDL(*HP5SI) INTNETADR('123.123.123.123') DESTOPT('XIAX XAUTOQ') SEPPAGE(*NO) The MFRTYPMDL will depend on the specific model of Dell printer you have. Obviously the actual IP address will depend on how you configure the printer or network adapter.

    Oops, make that DESTOPT('XAIX XAUTOQ')

    I've just spotted in your heading that the printer IS networked (I'm a bit slow at the moment, I've just had a cold... well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!). In that case the above AS400 command (with the correction) should set the printer up on the system. Go here to get the actual MFRTYPMDL for your printer: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas1b44a2cf4ba778d83862568250053649f&rs=110

    I agree with the software route. I usually recommend RPM Remote Print Manager from Brooks. It's pretty cheap and none of my users/clients look back once set up... it just runs. You install RPM on your Dell PC and can print from any where up to 24 printers within your print manager. Pretty easy setup, nothing to break or buy again, not hardware. Let me know if this works out for you. RPM can be found at RPM Print Server A great resource is the AS400 Printing web site. Have a great weekend! Frank
