We have a new product called iPrint Remote Print Server which will allow
the remote site to pull any spool file report as a PDF document and
print it locally at the remote site. It will also cache the report
locally for re-printing if desired.
iPrint can work over VPN or by opening up the iSeries Host Server ports.
If you're interested in taking a look, feel free to contact me directly
or Bill Whalen from my sales team.

subject: Remote secure printing
I need to send printed output to an outside entity. Our corporate
office has established a VPN connection with the outside entity. They
use Anentail to establish a connection through our corporate office to
our i. The IP on the device session does not match the IP of their
computer. I have been told by our corporate office that printing is not
possible. I had earlier tried to establish a remote output queue, but
the IP address is the issue. On the remote site, the printer is
attached to a pc, and they have installed the LPD software, and the
printer is shared.
Wild thought came to me late last night - lpr over ssh. I have read
where it can be done. In this case, the connection would bypass the
VPN, assuming the corporate office allowed it. But, I am wondering if
anybody has ever set up lpr over ssh from the i. Is this in one of the
RedBooks on printing?
