Connecting a printer to the LAN

I would like to take our Printronix 5210 printer (currently attached by twinax) and connect it to our LAN. The printer has a network card installed. What are the steps for configuring this device?
You would need to assign the printer an IP Address. Once you have done that, assign an output queue to it using the CRTOUTQ command. The remote system is *INTNETADR. The internet address is the IP address that you assigned to the printer. After this is created, execute the STRRMTWTR command with the output queue being the name that you assigned above. This should allow you to print from the AS/400 and the LAN using the OUTQ name from the AS/400 and the IP address from the LAN.
