Just a thought on remote OUTQs and DEVDs (maybe this was already said somewhere, but the entire thread is not here) - some applications require using a DEVD - the main one, IIRC, is Query for [pick your version of the system name].

That was, for places where I worked, the main reason to create the DEVD over the remote OUTQ. The other was support for things like page range and number of copies. There were a couple special values one could set, to make the remote OUTQ be able to use copies, at least.

So there it is - long-time-ago memories!

Mark, I was messing with the idea a device description/LAN printer.
I just prefer the Remote Output Queue method and was trying my best to make it work.

Well, your definition seems to be working. I just created it using your template command below.
All I changed was the name, IP address and the description.

I just called the user to test and it seems to be working.
She had a load paper prompt on the printer, which generated a message on the IBMi.
Just had to press OK on the printer. I may have to dig into that a bit.

Thank you so much for all of the help and suggestions. Bob
