Printing using a client access printer session

Tags:
Printing
At various time we have attempted to print from our iSeries system to a client access printer session. This session is connected remoting via an IP address. Is this possible at all.

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

A client Access printer session should be able to print to any printer that is defined to Windows. Under file/printer setup just select the desired printer.

However, if a printer has an IP address and supports one for the available drivers on the system it might be more flexible to print directly from the system using a device description. This is for printers that support PCL(HP).
CRTDEVPRT DEVD(XXXXXX) DEVCLS(*LAN) TYPE(3812) MODEL(1) LANATTACH(*IP) PORT(pppp) FONT(11) FORMFEED(*AUTOCUT) INACTTMR(*SEC15) PARITY(*NONE) STOPBITS(1) TRANSFORM(*YES) MFRTYPMDL(YYYYYY) RMTLOCNAME(`ZZZ.ZZZ.ZZZ.ZZZ?) SYSDRVPGM(*HPPJLDRV) and press [ENTER].
Where XXXXXX is the name of the device.
Where YYYYYY is the make and model of the printer. Press the [F4] key to prompt for additional parameters, to view a list of supported values.
Where ZZZ.ZZZ.ZZZ.ZZZ is the IP address assigned to the printer.
Where pppp is the IP port, Use 9100 for HP laser printers and 2501 for IBM network printers. For all other branded printers you?ll need to check the printer manual or contact your vendor for information.

If a driver is not available on the system a remote outq will probably work.

    You say you're connecting "remotely" to a Client Access session. If this is over a wide area network, it should work exactly the same as if you were connected locally: just create a named printer session in Client Access and allow the device to self-configure, then in the printer session click File > Printer Setup to select a Windows printer. The system value QAUTOVRT must be set to *NOMAX or to a number greater than the number of virtual devices already configured on the system. If you are connecting via a remote workstation controller, you will need to be sure the controller is configured correctly for TCP/IP. There could be other remote connection methods I'm not thinking of.
