If the spool file is at "SND" status, you don't have things configured 
right.  AFIAK, "SND" is for LPR/LPD, not 5250 printing.   It should be
at "WTR" status when sending to the printer.

First... what version of tn5250 are you using?  lp5250d had some serious
bugs that are currently fixed in both the stable and development sources
in CVS.

Next, do WRKOBJ *ALL/EC20004S2 and vary off & delete all the objects.
(Or use a different name that doesnt already exist)

Then with QAUTOVRT sysval set up to auto-config virtual devices, start
lp5250d.  This way, the devices get set up properly.  

For a modern version of lp5250d (the versions that use the config file
approach) I'd configure lp5250d like this:

EC20004S2 {
    host = BR4001
    env.DEVNAME = EC20004S2
    env.IBMMSGQNAME=DSP01
    env.IBMMSGQLIB=*LIBL
    outputcommand=scs2ascii|lpr
}

then simply do lp5250d EC20004S2

Or with the older lp5250d (which I wouldnt recommend) you'd do:

lp5250d -s EC20004S2 BR4001

as you suggested.
