Most of my *OUTQs don’t have IP addresses. The addresses are in the *DEVDs since I try to limit use of remote *OUTQs. iSeries Access printer sessions also probably won’t have IP addresses — even though connected via TCP/IP (and especially if not).
It’s almost guaranteed that the value in your *OUTQ is not *SAME. More likely, you don’t have the authority to change it. Many commands will display “*SAME” when you execute a ‘Change’ command without the authority to change all of the attributes. Attributes that are restricted (to you) are replaced with “*SAME” because ‘the same’ value that currently is set will be the value that remains after you execute the command.
Typically, when you prompt such a command, you will see “Current values could not be retrieved.” on the message line.
