Rommy:

You have to create a OUTQ on the Novell network.
You have to get a JET DIRECT BOX for the printer.
Remove the Ethernet card from the printer.
Connect JET DIRECT BOX to printer via parallel port.
Configure JET DIRECT BOX with an IP address.
Ping IP from AS/400 to be sure it is Activated on Novell.
On the AS/400 create an IP device for the outq, do not vary on the device.
change outq using CHGOUTQ using *intnetadr, IP and manufacturer type and
model.
