We have a situation similar to Art's.  Instead of using the same outq, each
remote location is assigned its own outq.  As someone else mentioned, DO
NOT WRKOUTQ on this machine!

When a user dials in, our users start the printer to their outq.  In our
case, we don't automatically start the printer to the Q, although that
would be a logical extension of our procedures.

Because we have no control over which of our multiple lines a user reaches
when they dial in, which controls the terminal and printer devices that
conversation will use, we have a table that matches the line to the printer
device to be used for that line.  When the user starts the printer, the
printer device is automatically filled in; the user just enters the outq
name they wish to use.
