We are at V4R2M0.  Some of the PC's have Client Access, but some may not
have it.  I am not sure what the exact setup will be yet.  My guess is that
they would like to do it from workstations that do not have C/A but we could
probably live with printing the reports from the PC's with C/A.  I was
thinking about TCPIP, but I am not sure how that would work.  We currently
send AS400 spooled files to some of our network printers that have IP
addresses.  Can and AS400 printer be made to have an IP address that
applications on other networks could direct output to?

I was able to set up a printer in windows that targeted out IBM 6408 and was
able to print an e-mail to it.  But I would like to know what other options
are available.

Thank you,

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
shouldn't
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....
