Installation Planning Guide
This section describes the process of configuring an AS/400
system to communicate and print using TCP/IP. This process is
applicable to either a Token Ring or an Ethernet LAN.
This information applies to all AS/400 RISC models with OS/400
V3R7 (or higher) installed.
The following prerequisite software packages must be installed
on your host system before you begin the configuration process
described in the following pages. Ensure that you are using the
manuals for the proper software releases.

The printer is supported in all the following types of AS/400
configurations, provided that the software prerequisites are
Basic configuration in which the AS/400 is attached to a LAN
using either a Token Ring or Ethernet network adapter card
Remote LAN environment in which there are data
communication links between the AS/400 and the LAN-
Configurations in which the LAN with the printer attached is
