Hi Lamar - >I would like to setup a new printer on our network but >this time I would like it to be a Network printer. Can >this be done with a "JetDirect" card and an HP LaserJet >4050? We are running a TCP/IP network and Windows98/NT/2000 >on our PC's. We also have about five AS/400's on our network. >We would need to be able to print from the PC's and the >AS/400's using TCP/IP. We are also running WINS (No DNS). >Thanks for any help. 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) + PRTERRMSG(*INQ) MSGQ(*CTLD) ACTTMR(600) INACTTMR(*SEC15) + 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. Ken Southern Wine and Spirits of Nevada, Inc.
