Naive question: Not sure what you mean by your first question. I don't know how the other side is configured.

I am not sure if the correct address is being used. Using WRKCFGSTS, I see one P address. On the other end, Mochasoft is using a different IP.

Another DUH! moment. I wish I had tried LPR. Something for tomorrow.

Subject: Re: Remote printing through a VPN

Is the Windows PC behind a NAT gateway? (That's not bypassed by the VPN?)

Are you sure you're using the VPN IP address instead of the "real" IP
address of the PC?

What happens if you try the LPR command manually. Same thing, where it
just hangs there, or do you get an error message (that might help you
know what's wrong)?

I have set up LPD on Windows and been able to print from the i with

VPN is a factor. A test spool file is in SND status. I thought the
IP address that I see associated with the display session was the
same addres I would use for the remote output queue.

I have asked and was told that the firewall was not blocking port
515.

Does VPN not allow bidirectional transfer, or is a different IP used
to get back to the remote site?
