Remote OUTQ's would let the System i send to the Unix box.

For the Unix box to send to the System i you need ot find out what protocol the unix box wants to use.

LPD/LPR would probably be the easiest option. The LPD is built into the System i.

Actually as an FYI, remote OUTQ's are the LPR or client-side part of LPD/LPR.

IIRC, The system i also includes a SMB print server for Windows clients.

How is the printer attached to the iSeries?

Why can't the Unix box send directly to the printer?

Subject: Unix output to System i output queue?

I had a question today from a client who wants to direct
output from a Unix box to an output queue configured on their
System i (V5R3). I'm thinking that remote output queues
might somehow provide what they are looking for, but I'm
fuzzy on how the Unix box would 'see' this queue.
I looked in the archives and could not find anything specific
to this.
Any ideas?
