Ralph, If you are trying to print to it from the AS/400, you have three
1) purchase IPDS feature and use PSF/400 (also requires you to purchase
PSF/400...if you don't have it already).
2) Use the SNMP printer driver support (in base of V4R5 and PTF'd to V4R3 and
3) Remote writer support (or the LPR printer driver exit tool in QUSRTOOL)
Check out the AS/400 Software knowledge database. There are articles on each
of the subjects which includes configuration and PTF numbers.
