Additional info - Should probably have mentioned that the Client Access I
set up was 95/NT V3R2. I'd like to try Express as well, but haven't yet. DG

> 
> Options & Descriptions (copied from Welcome CD):
> *     Network printer: Often called virtual print, this method means that
> your PC applications print on AS/400- or LAN-attached printers as if they
> were physically attached to your PC. 
> *     5250 printer emulation: With printer emulation, you can print AS/400
> application output to a workstation-attached printer.
> *     Share PC-attached printer with other Client Access users: You can do
> this by combining the other two methods. Network print is used to forward
> PC output to the AS/400 Spool file, then the Printer Emulation Session is
> used to print that output on a PC printer attached to another Client
> Access user's PC. 
> 
> Our AS/400 will not be used very much in the short term. It is a 720
> running V4R3. Client Access is installed on one PC so far (and will be
> installed on several others) and the 5250 display emulation works. We do
> not plan to do any development or any real end user work yet. For now, it
> will be used mainly to practice JDEdwards Installations (both World and
> OneWorld). We have several PCs and several Intel servers on the same
> network as the AS/400. There is one dumb terminal for the AS/400 in the
> server room. We will need to be able to print the status reports from the
> JDE install procedure and various types of print screens (e.g. host print
> as well as Client Access print).
> 
> My first thought is to use option 2, the 5250 printer emulation. However,
> I don't understand how I print from the dumb terminal this way, since
> there are no printer devices (wrkwtr) set up on the AS/400 and the CD
> doesn't explain how to set that up - likely there is something here that I
> don't understand?
> 
> We will soon be moving to V4R4, so if one of these printing options is
> easier than the others for updating to V4R4, or if one of these can be set
> up quickly and easily and then discarded in favour of something better in
> V4R4, that would be useful to know.

> Suggestions anyone?
