Hello Adam,

I don't know of a list of printers but searching the IBM knowledge base may
net you something.

I use an Epson Colour Stylus 800 to print from my 170.  The printer is
attached to my OS/2 Warp Server and I have LPD running on OS/2.  I defined a
remote output queue on the AS/400 which points to the printer via the OS/2
server.  The printer is also a shared printer for the OS/2 workstations on
the LAN.  You should be able to accomplish the same sort of thing under

I haven't tried printing 198 column reports but everything up to 132 columns
works fine.  The technical specs for the printer show 160 columns (at 12 CPI
condensed) to be the maximum width but that is probably in portrait mode.  I
know the Stylus 800 can print in landscape mode.  Have you tried setting the
PAGRTT value to *COR on the printer file (use CHGPRTF or OVRPRTF)?

Did I mention OS/2 enough times?  OS/2, OS/2, OS/2, OS/2!

Simon Coulter.
