On v3r2, there is no parameter to suppress the separator page. I thought
there was some data area or something that you could set that can control
this in releases before v4r1, at least. In v4r1 (and maybe v3r7), there is
a 'Print separator page' *YES/*NO parameter on CRTOUTQ. Does anyone
remember details? I can't get to <>
right now to find the APAR that covers this. There may be a PTF for v3r2,
but I'm not sure. Try IBM Support, if you have a contract.

As far as page range, printing over IP doesn't have this facility. There
are some new things that IBM is working on, having to do with
network-attached HP printers, and the next Client Access will have printer
sessions for TCP/IP, just like it has now for SNA connections.

There's quite a bit of info at <>, which makes an
LPD (print server) for PCs. They also have good knowledge of AS/400s. This
product lets you print to printers directly attached to PCs.
