Client Access printer sessions

Is there a way to eliminate having TO and FORM load prompts on Client Access printer sessions, or *Lan defined printers. I like the *Lan printer definition, but the *VRT definition doesn't require me to answer a prompt every time the printer starts to load form type. I'm working with OS/400 on V5R2. Also, what is the best way to send printer codes to a network attached printer? We're working with DUPLEX printing.

First, create a message queue in QGPL called PRTMSG (if it doesn't exist). You can then change the output queue definition to use this message queue and your alignment messages will go away. Second, you can use the OVRPRTF or CRTPRTF commands to send printer codes to the printer. There are options for DUPLEX printing on the printer files.
