I tried this a few releases back and had the same issue as your describing.
My work around was to have the print image on the UNIX system turned into a
flat file and named as the desired file name and FTPed over to the AS/400
and then we wrote a program on the 400 to turn it back into a spoolfile with
the desired spoolfile attributes.   For comparison use the SNDTCPSPLF
command between two AS/400s and change the DESTTYP and TRANSFORM parms to
different values and notice how on the target system different filenames
appear on the attributes depending on the selected values, similar to an
Unix system sending to an AS/400.

Subject: LPR/LPD losing filename


        I've got a customer with and HP box using a product called
TRANSPOOLER to send files down to the AS/400 via LPR/LPD.  The HP box does
not have LPR built into the OS that's what the transpooler product does.  On
the AS/400 the spool files appear in an outqueue with the following
attributes :

        FILENAME        USERDATA
        LPD4983 GULPB3
        LPD4986F         GULPB3
        LPDC707         GULPB3
        .
        .
        .

        The userdata contains the name of the file coming from the HP box.
The filename is what we are interested in seeing and archiving.  Is there
any way to retain the userdata without the AS/400 LPR/LPD changing the
filename to a generic name?

        Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in Advance,

Alan Schuetze
