Remote printing problem with AS/400

Remote Printing
I have a site in Wisconsin (we're in New Jersey) that can connect to our AS/400 via emulation with no problem. When I create outq with the correct IP address all I receive for the 1 page sample is the status hanging at 'SND'. We have a site in Illinois with the exact same problem. I see no errors, but no print outs either. We have 2 HP 2430tn printers here configured the same way (different IP addresses of course) and both work perfectly. It was my attempt to memic the logic from the 2 HP 2430tn printer to work at both site, but no luck up to this point. H-E-L-P. Thank You, Douglas L McDuffie

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

Douglas, question, what is the make and model of the printer? How do you configure the remote printers? Are they configure as remote out queues? Have you take a look at the IBM website and look for information pertaining to your printer make and model?Usually you get this message because you have some incorrect parameters configure for the printer. Let me know the make and model of the printers and how are you connecting them to the system and I’ll try to give you a hand.

    I believe he said right there in the question that they are 2 HP 2430TN printers.

    The printer is a HP LJ 5Si. I agree with you on the incorrect parameters, but I'm not sure which ones. Here's the crtoutq parameters I used. crtoutq outq (prtalsmain) rmtsys (*intnetadr) rmtprtq (prtalsmain) autostrwtr (1) cnntype (*ip) desttype(*other) transform (*yes) mfrtypmdl (*hp5si) intnetadr(###.##.#.#) seppage(*no) Thank You, Douglas L McDuffie

    Here is an output queue configured on our system to drive printer in another city. Maybe it will help. The "XAIX" option near the end allows you to print a page range. At one time we used this method to print to a 5si, so we know the AS/400 can handle that particular model. 5722SS1 V5R4M0 060210 SRAPINE 01/26/09 08:58:20 PST Queue: SAADPR1 Library: QUSRSYS Status: Writer active . . . . . . . . . . . : Y Writer name(s) if active . . . . . . : SAADPR1 Output queue held . . . . . . . . . : N Maximum spooled file size: Number of pages . . . . . . . . . . : *NONE Starting time . . . . . . . . . . . : Ending time . . . . . . . . . . . . : Writers to autostart . . . . . . . . . : 1 Display any file . . . . . . . . . . . : *YES Job separators . . . . . . . . . . . . : 0 Operator controlled . . . . . . . . . : *YES Order of files on queue . . . . . . . : *FIFO Data queue . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : *NONE Library . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Authority to check . . . . . . . . . . : *OWNER Remote system . . . . . . . . . . . . : *INTNETADR Remote printer queue . . . . . . . . . : SAADPR1 Queue for writer messages . . . . . . : QSYSOPR Library . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : *LIBL Connection type . . . . . . . . . . . : *IP Internet address . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.71.32 Destination type . . . . . . . . . . . : *OTHER VM/MVS class . . . . . . . . . . . . . : FCB . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Host print transform . . . . . . . . . : *YES User data transform . . . . . . . . . : Library . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Manufacturer type and model . . . . . : *HP4 Workstation customizing object . . . . : *NONE Library . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Image configuration . . . . . . . . . : *NONE Destination options . . . . . . . . . : XAIX Print separator page . . . . . . . . . : *NO User defined option . . . . . . . . . : *NONE User defined object: Object . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : *NONE Library . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Object type . . . . . . . . . . . . : User driver program . . . . . . . . . : *NONE Library . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Spooled file ASP . . . . . . . . . . . : *SYSTEM Text description . . . . . . . . . . . : Admin Printer #1 * * * * * E N D O F L I S T I N G * * * * *

    You say your users connect to the AS/400 using emulation. Do you have printer emulation, or display emulation only. What you describe is LPR/LPD printing and I assume the IP address you are using is the printer's and not a workstation. If you have printer emulation, you may find its use to be more suitable. With it the full range of AS/400 spool control is available and the emulator will probably take care of all the device configuration needed. Leo Burkett
