NOTE: There may be printer performance and throughput
implications with some of these configurations. It is
recommended that your network management group be involved
with planning this installation.
Follow these steps to configure your AS/400 to print to a printer
connected to the LAN, using TCP/IP.
The following worksheet will help you in planning the printer
installation. It describes the key values which you need to supply
when planning the AS/400 configuration. All values on this
worksheet must be determined before you begin the printer
configuration on the host.
This is the name of the printer (writer). An
Output Queue of the same name is
automatically created. Spool files that you
place in this Output Queue are directed to the
Xerox printer software installation. This is the
printer IP address.
Use the Set Option command to set the
option IPDSTcpPortNumber. The value 5001
works best for IPDS printers.

NOTE: It is assumed that your AS/400 is connected to the LAN
and all the prerequisite software is installed and configured.
