Working with InfoPrint Design

I am working with InfoPrint Design, printing to a HP LaserJet 4100 series. It works fine with the network printers, but will not work with the same printer connected to my PC using Client Access Printer Session. Each time I release a print job, the OUTQ holds the job. The message tells me to go to CHGDEVPRT and change the AFP to Yes. That field is not displayed when I access CHGDEVPRT. The printer has advanced printing enabled. Can you please tell me what's going on?

The solution is to configure the printer session in Client Access to use host print transform rather then "regular" printing.

With Host Printer Transform (HPT). The iSeries generates the PC printer data stream on the iSeries and sends it to the PC to print, this can be used to print Advanced Function Print (AFP) documents to PC printers. It provides the most consistent output of the three emulation methods when different emulators and print drivers are used. However, HPT uses iSeries CPU cycles to perform its transformations.
