Here is the RTVCFGSRC for a 4050 that we have on our network.  Since it is
RTVCFGSRC, all parameters appear, even though most of them are the command
defaults.

CRTDEVPRT DEVD(NLDACCT) DEVCLS(*LAN) TYPE(3812) MODEL(1) +         
         LANATTACH(*IP) PORT(9100) ATTACH(*DIRECT) ONLINE(*YES) +  
         FONT(011 *NONE) FORMFEED(*AUTOCUT) SEPDRAWER(*FILE) +

         LINESPEED(19200) WORDLEN(8) PARITY(*NONE) STOPBITS(1) +   
         TRANSFORM(*YES) MFRTYPMDL(*HP4000) PPRSRC1(*LETTER) +     
         PPRSRC2(*LETTER) ENVELOPE(*NUMBER10) ASCII899(*YES) +     
         IMGCFG(*NONE) CHRID(*SYSVAL) RMTLOCNAME('192.168.45.44') +
         SYSDRVPGM(*HPPJLDRV) +                                    
         TEXT('Las Vegas - Downstairs - Accounting')               

With the IP address in the RMTLOCNAME, as I have it above, you don't need
DNS.  You also could put the printer names and IP addresses in the AS/400s
TCP/IP host table, then use the printer names in the device description
(which I am going to do for ours when I get a round tuit).

This printer handles both PC output and AS/400 output.
