The "no entries" is a message coming back from a print server telling you that it is idle. So, from that - I'd say the queue is configured correctly. To
setup a remote queue:
Local filtering (if you want AIX to format before sending)
Standard processing (if the server is to do the formatting)
Fill in the hostname of the print server
Fill in the name of the queue on the server
The server has to be running an lpd daemon, have a queue by the name specified as the "name of queue on server" you specified when creating the queue on the
AIX client, and has to allow the client to print to its queues - typically by /etc/hosts.lpd file if the server you're going to is a UNIX system.
