Hello,

This is my scenery:

I have Iseries machine with a Printronix p7010 as the default printer attached via twinax. I want this Printronix my default printer but now in my Network.

I have another printer IBM 6400 as spare so I connected this to my Iseries(via twinax) to work on my Printronix.

Finally I put my P7010 in my network (I can ping the IP Address ) following steps others guys from here gave me and also I create a remote output queue.(thanks guys)

I tested the remote outqueue moving a file from my default printer and release it. everything is printing fine but I need this remote outqueue as my default printer (called PRT01) because I want everything print immediately without release.

My programs when generate reports use PRT01.

I need your advice. Do I need to delete my default printer PRT01 and create another remote output queue with PRT01 name?  

I wait for your advises
Thank you very much
