Tim,

I don't think you can attach two output queues to one printer at the
same time, but you should be able to pipe one output queue into another
using TCP/IP, although it's a bit messy IMO.

You could change the description of PRT2 along these lines:

Writers to autostart = 0
Remote system = (local system name)
Remote printer queue = PRT1
Connection type = IP
Destination type = *OS400
Transform SCS to ASCII = *NO

When you issue a STRRMTWTR PRT2 command, any ready items in PRT2 will be
transferred automatically to PRT1 using LPR/LPD services, where they
will then be printed on P1. To turn it off you isuse ENDWTR PRT2
OPTION(*immed).

If you want also to be able to attach PRT2 to another local printer, say
P2, then you could uglify it a bit further by having a CL program that
automatically ends the writer, changes the output queue description and
restarts it with either the STRPRTWTR or STRRMT writer command.
