IBM Infoprint 1852 printer
I have an 1852 installed and working on an IBM iSeries. Want to add capability to print documents from Microsoft Word. Loaded drivers and can print test page OK. Works fine until it receives data from the iSeries. Then it will not print Word documents until the printer is turned off and on again.

Is a printer device described or is it used only through a remote *OUTQ?

create or change as PSFSFG associated with printer through device description. Use it to release printer to other jobs. This is setting we use for all printers and we have 1332 s through 18582s working as both IPDS and network printers.

If I understand correctly what you are needing the printer to be released to the network job.
I have 2 printers working as: network printers and Remote outqs from another Iseries and device descriptions on the local with no conflict problems and about 8 others doing network and IPDS jobs from (gasp) 400.
