Dear Gary and Frank,

We resell print servers with the same capabilities as the HP JetDirect card 
mentioned in this post. The ability to control multiple print server ports is a 
very important sales criteria for print server manufacturers so I thought I 
would ask IBM how this was supported on the AS/400. The answer I received from 
them is appended below:

IBM Answer Begins here:

When you create a remote outq to direct spool files to the print server, 
whether using SNA or TCP/IP, the crtoutq command has a parameter RMTPRTQ.  Your 
should configure this to match the print queue 'NAME' that the print server has 
assigned to the various printer ports.  It is then the responsibility of the 
print server to correctly route the print data to the correct printer port.
IBM Answer ends here:
I hope this information is helpful.
