That's why in the create command that I had in the message referenced in the
archive, I have ACTTMR(600).  That tells the AS/400 to wait for up to 600
seconds (10 minutes) for the device to become available.  The default is 170
seconds.

I would rather run the output through our NT print spooler but I could not
find a way to do that with a remote printer, only with a remote outq, which
means a lot of the print parameters get lost.  I went for the lesser of the
two evils.
