RE: Print from a PC to iSeries output queue



fixed

Mike,

Just go into navigator and define a print share. This lets you install
printer drivers on your PC that use your midrange as a windows print
server.

Subject: Print from a PC to iSeries output queue

Is it possible to setup a Windows PC so it has a printer that would
print to an iSeries output queue? And then use whatever iSeries
utilities there are to manage that spool file? Might be move it to a
queue attached to a remote laser printer and print it, might be copy the
spool file to a database file and process it with my own application,
might be print it to a local attached printer. Would this be something
IPP printing would handle? If so I think I can figure out the server
side for setup of IPP but what would I need to do on the PC side to
setup a Windows printer that points to the IPP device?
