I am a really newbie in RPG programming and also networking. Right now I am working with an AS/400 program.
Currently we are using third-party software to read the AS/400 spool and distribute it to a different network printer in a different department. Because of the instability of the software, the manager decided to try to recreate the code to make it an in-house product that can easily be maintained.
Can you guide me through the process on how to create it? (We are using Exchange Server 5.5, Exchange 2000, Outlook 2000 & 1998).
I did not fully understand what the software package is doing. AS/400 spool files can be distributed to network printers with no need for a package.
- Your printer is hp
- The printer network card address is 10.10.10.10
The following command will create remote output queue for this printer:
From now on every spool file released into the outq MyQueue will be printed automatically in the network printer 10.10.10.10.
