Yes, you can. You need the AFP function on your 400, which means purchasing
Print Services Facility on recent boxes. You need to say 'Yes' to using
host print transform on the device description, in the case of laser
printers. With this, I believe you could even print AFP to Epson dot-matrix!

For JetDirect, use CRTOUTQ to create a remote outq, using 'raw' for the
remote queue name and, again, 'Yes' to host print transform. It just works!

Look at redbooks Printing III & Printing IV for more info.
