1) You need to have an connection through the network to the printer
established. You will need either A) a print server; or B) a printer
attached to a PC with a newer version of client access that supports named
devices and printer sessions. Client Access is the easiest way - just
create a printer session and the local printer attached to your PC can be a
system printer. A network printer connection will require a laser printer
attached to a print server. The print server attached to the network
(example AXIS 540 using a remote output queue configuration). Some laser
printers can be attached and emulate actual printer devices on the AS/400,
but using the AXIS 540 you must configure it on the AS/400 as a remote
output queue. (Remote output queues are easy to configure.) The AXIS box
can be configured by using a web browser over your local area network. The
crtoutq command is all that is needed on the AS/400. Example below:

If you want to use the lan attached printer as a PC printer you will be
required to install the necessary drivers to drive the printer over the
network.

Remote printing does not work well on systems that are very busy.

I hope this will be of some help.

Subject:  BPCS printing to remote location.


We have an AS400 version V4R2.  Our remote location is connected
using frame relay and I believe using TCP/IP (I'm just learning all this).
Our remote location has Windows NT version 4.0, and all their pc's have
IBM Client Access installed.  They can print to their pc's while running
the BPCS software.  They do not have a controller.  They have a frad,
router, (whatever it's called).
What they are looking for is a tractor fed printer to print their forms
in BPCS (Invoices and Pick Lists).
I had suggested using their current laser printer and using just 8 1/2
x 11 paper for this, but they DON'T want to do this.
Is their a tractor fed printer that can be attached to their network, or
pc,
so
they can print out their BPCS forms?  How should this be connected?
Can this be done?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Sandy
