Presumable you're using basic LPR/LPD support (you created a remote
output queue defining the remote system info).

If your printer has IPDS support you can get the same level of control
as for a locally attached Twinax printer - check out:

If your printer can't support IPDS but can handle PJL you can replace
the remote output queue definition with CRTDEVPRT  (device class *RMT,
type 3812, model 1, lanattach *IP, etc. etc.) specifying the PJL driver
for SYSDRVPGM (choice of *HPPJLDRV or *IBMPJLDRV).  This support was
added by PTF back to V3R2 I believe (maybe not in V3R6), and should be
in the base V4R2 code.  Check out:

or go to
select Print, and then Search for 8695149 (the document number).
