Hi stansj1993,

What do you mean by printed on the AS/400?
I assume that the printers are connected to the as/400 by a LAN?
or do you still use printers connected by Twinax?

Hi
one way to do it is via the AS/400 NerServer function.
This basically allows a PC to output via the AS/400 to a network printer.

See
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/legacy/html/as400/v4r5/ic2924/index.htm?info/RZAHLSTARTGUIDE.HTM

you would then print via the shared printer and it would appear on the AS/400 outq with a device type of *USRASCII.
