I had hoped that IBM would have fixed this by now, but at least the support 
center knows how to answer it -- not so when TCP/IP printing was first 
introduced.  The easiest way to do it is to point a native OUTQ at a remote 
device.  What _I_ usually do is point a Rumba, NetSoft, or CA printer at the 
desired network device.  Reports sent to said outq can then be changed to 
handle page ranges and number of copies...
