Depends on "how" you are in the network and how you setup the printer...
Also depends on what version of OS/400 you are running.. Later versions,
like V4R2--> have some much better host print transform.... PCL
be a problem with HPT... I use a 4049 locally, and it's a PCL printer
attached to a 3487 using HP Lazer Jet emulation.... CA/400 will handle
this situation also, as will TCP/IP attached printers...

Soooo ... short answer is maybe... tell us more about your setup....
