I am assuming you are trying to do the following:
Create a REMOTE *OUTQ on the AS/400 that sends print to a network attached line printer.
With that assumption.... Here is how the process should work:
The REMOTE *OUTQ on the AS/400 sends print via LPD to a printer that has to be running LPR in order to receive it.
The message you are encountering indicates to me that the LPR process on the line printer isn't configured correctly. Recheck that configuration and try again. I wish I could be more specific, but the LPR configuration details can be quite different for different printer devices and servers.
Also make sure you used the correct "Manufacturer type and model (MFRTYPMDL)" parameter on the CRTOUTQ command, when you created the REMOTE *OUTQ.
Here is an example of how I setup a REMOTE *OUTQ to connect to one of our network attached HP4 printers:
CRTOUTQ OUTQ(OUTQLIB/OUTQNAME) MAXPAGES(*NONE) SEQ(*FIFO) RMTSYS(*INTNETADR) RMTPRTQ(PASSTHRU) AUTOSTRWTR(1) MSGQ(QSYSOPR) CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE(*OTHER) TRANSFORM(*YES) USRDTATFM(*NONE) MFRTYPMDL(*HP4) WSCST(*NONE) IMGCFG(*NONE) INTNETADR('126.96.36.199') CLASS(A) FCB(*NONE) DESTOPT(XAIX) SEPPAGE(*NO) USRDFNOPT(*NONE) USRDFNOBJ(*NONE) USRDRVPGM(*NONE) SPLFASP(*SYSTEM) TEXT('Specify a meaningful Description') DSPDTA(*YES) JOBSEP(0) OPRCTL(*YES) DTAQ(*NONE) AUTCHK(*DTAAUT) AUT(*USE)
