I need to add a network printer to our AS/400. We no longer have an operator or sys admin or support.

Hi,

You’ll need to create a remote output queue :-

<b>CRTOUTQ OUTQ(<i>Yourlib/YourOutQueue</i>) RMTSYS(*INTNETADR) RMTPRTQ() CNNTYPE(*IP) MFRTYPMDL(<i>SelectOneSimilarToYourPrinter</i>) INTNETADR(<i>PrinterIPAddress</i>) DESTOPT(‘XAIX’) </b>

Replace the <i>text in italics</i> with your own values.

Once the output queue is in place you’ll need to start a remote writer for the printer :-

<b>STRRMTWTR OUTQ(<i>Yourlib/YourOutQueue</i>) </b>

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

I would change the <b>DSTOPT</b> to ‘XAIX XAUTOQ’. According to IBM:

“XAUTOQ is a performance enhancement, in which data is not required to be transformed
again if the connection is interrupted. XAIX allows printing of
multiple copies.”

Also, you may want to check out http://www.itjungle.com/mgo/mgo082302-readers.html for a utility that will allow page range support.
