Normally, when you create a printer DEVD, the system creates an OUTQ of the
same name.

If the OUTQ already exists, (IIRC) you'll get a warning message.

See the section, "*Configuring a Dummy Device Description to Use with a
Remote Output Queue"*
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1010090


Note however, that a remote outq is the least prefered method of printing..

So have an outq & device with the same name? Couldn't you run into

If nothing else, I think you could set up a dummy device description with
the same name as the remote out queue.

That's the old-school work around for 5250 apps that only allow you to
specify a device.
