I didn't have a pressing need to use all three ports on AS/400, most are
used
on NetWare, there is no problem there.  I got the new and cheap 150 model
for those that needed AS/400 printing.

solution,
although I don't completely understand it, maybe I'll get one to see.
Its also possible that I missed this feature in JetDirect, but I sure
looked
for it at the time.  I also think I called HP, but I call so often I
can't be sure.
