LPD/LPR isn't really resilient...it's just dumb.

Basically, communication is one-direction host --> Printer

As the manual says:
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_71/rzalu/rzaluconfiglprlpd.htm
Note: You should only consider using this method if your printer does not
support the Printer Job Language (PJL), Simple Network Management Protocol
(SNMP), or Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) printing methods. This method
of printing has a number of limitations. Restrictions when using this
method include, but are not limited to:

- No page range support.
- Limited or no printer status.
- Limited or no error recovery.
- Limited or no control of a spooled file after it is sent.

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.

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..
