Hi Simon,

Thanks, I must have misread your first mail. I'll have a look at LPD.

I never suggested that you use OS/2 although as you say not being able to
unfortunate.  The main point you should have got from my earlier comment
the use of LPD on the system with the printer.  While OS/2 does have a
better TCP stack than windoze you should be able to get an LPD server for
the client's PC (possibly free, certainly cheap).  Install it and start it.
Then point an AS/400 remote output queue at the PC (via IP address or host
name) and specify LPT1 for the remote printer queue (you may also be able
specify a windoze spool queue).

I vaguely recall something about reducing the font size in the AFP viewer
see longer lines.

Perhaps the system is already rotating pages that are wider than the
page size (i.e., *COR).  Check the definition of the printer file.
