Remote Outq Configurations on AS/400

5 pts.
AS/400 printing
Hello, I am on a model 720 iSeries V4.4 OS and am attempting to create a remote output queue to print to an HP1022n laserjet printer currently attached to our network. At this level of the operating system (V4.4), that particular HP printer is not listed under the Manufacturer Type and Model parameter of the CRTOUTQ command. I've tried HP4, and HP4000 and they have not worked. I can start the writer and ping the IP address successfully. However, when I release a spool file to print, it just sits in the Outq in SND mode but never prints... I'm thinking this is related to either the Manufacturer Type and Model parameter or it may be related to the Remote Printer Queue parameter. Generally, I see *HP4 being used for Manufacturer Type and Model on other remote output queues that have HP printers attached and 'XAUTOQ' is used for the Destination Option parameter. For the Remote Printer Queue parameter I see 'TEXT' commonly used but for some reason these values are not working for this HP1022n printer... Is there a place where I can get a published listing of these parameters for various printer manufacturers? Does each manufacturer have their own specific set of values for each of these parameters? When I spoke to a representative at HP, they didn't have a clue as to what I was talking about... I don't have Software Support from IBM - only Hardware Support. Thanks and best regards!

Maybe some of the following links will help :-

There is a note specific to this model of printer :-

The HP LaserJet 1022, 1022n, and 1022nw printers can come with a wireless Ethernet 802.11b/WiFi and wired Ethernet 802.3 print server that does not support Line Printer Requester (LPR). However, the LPR column for this printer specifies N*, rather than just N, because this printer could be USB attached to a Microsoft Windows PC that is running a built-in or third party LPD program, or it could be attached to an external HP JetDirect or other print server that supports LPR, in which case you should be able to use LPR to print to this printer.

So it looks like you won’t be able to print directly to this printer through the network unless you go via a PC with specific drivers or via some other print server such as HP JetDirect.

    LutherG Are you using an AS400 print server? You will probably need to set up a print session on your pc or an FPS on site to run this. Also I would set the device type at 3812 under description of the device. It sounds like you have the 400 seeing the device but it deosn' t know what to do with it. The print session attached to the ip address will tell it what it is...

    Many HP printers are config'd on our IBM i with remote output queues.  We find that printers classified as N in the LPR column do not work.  I am referring to IBM's document which spells out HP printer config settings.  There is a workaround which involves a device description but even then the printers have limited functionality.  Considering the cost of the 1022n, it is not worth spending anything to get it working.
