OK, I thought you meant an active device and a printer, and I was afraid of collisions if both send print jobs at the same time. I'll give the dummy device a try.

I'm not sure why remote outq's are the least preferred method. In my experience they're much more resilient and nowhere near as "high maintenance" as devices. I only use devices where I need page# control, or with printers that don't support LPR.

Subject: Re: Java print to remote outq?

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"*

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