Questions about setting up a remote printer queue -vs- a local printer queue

On my AIX 5.1 system, when I setup a Xerox printer as a local printer, it will not print.  However if I setup the Xerox printer as a remote printer it will.

Usually, after setting up a HP printer as a local printer I go into lsvirprt and enter several parameters loke w=500, Z=!.  It will not let me do this for a remote printer queue.  Is there a way to do the same thing for a remote printer?

Also, wonder why I can setup a HP laserjet printer as local and it works fine but the Xerox will not?  My system does not have a driver for an HP printer setup.

Thanks,
Mark

Generic xerox would be office copier...

Physical port parameters are configured on host that has physical port. Not over network for each client.

What printers are involved - exact makes and models please.
In the meantime take AIX CD set and install printers.* via smitty
