Three ways to configure remote outque to LAN printers

Here are three ways to configure a remote outque to a LAN printer.

Here are three ways to configure a remote outque to a LAN printer. The last option resolves the IP address using the actual host name from the DNS Server thereby removing hard-coded IP addresses regardless if the DNS Server IP address changes.

1. Create an outq with hard-coded IP address.

CRTOUTQ OUTQ(QUSRSYS/STUHP4) RMTSYS(*INTNETADR)RMTPRTQ('d1prn') AUTOSTRWTR(1)CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE(*OTHER)TRANSFORM(*NO) USRDTATFM(QGPL/TSPRWPR) MFRTYPMDL(*HP4)INTNETADR('100.101.109.2') DESTOPT('XAIX XAUTOQ') SEPPAGE(*NO) TEXT('Studio HP4 Laser')

2. Create an outq with host name from the AS400 host table that contains the hard-code IP address.

CRTOUTQ OUTQ(QUSRSYS/STUHP4) RMTSYS(STUHP4)RMTPRTQ('d1prn') AUTOSTRWTR(1)CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE(*OTHER)TRANSFORM(*NO) USRDTATFM(QGPL/TSPRWPR) MFRTYPMDL(*HP4)INTNETADR('100.101.109.2') DESTOPT('XAIX XAUTOQ') SEPPAGE(*NO) TEXT('Studio HP4 Laser')

In addition, use CFGTCP, Option 10 "Work with TCP/IP host table entries" to enter host name and hard-coded IP address. This option is useful if you need to override the DNS Server IP address.

3. Create an outq with the host name from the DNS Server. This way, the IP address is maintained in one place.

CRTOUTQ OUTQ(QUSRSYS/STUHP4) RMTSYS(RISTUHP4)RMTPRTQ('d1prn') AUTOSTRWTR(1)CNNTYPE(*IP) DESTTYPE(*OTHER)TRANSFORM(*NO) USRDTATFM(QGPL/TSPRWPR) MFRTYPMDL(*HP4)INTNETADR('100.101.109.2') DESTOPT('XAIX XAUTOQ') SEPPAGE(*NO) TEXT('Studio HP4 Laser')

In addition, use CFGTCP, Option 12 "Change TCP/IP domain information" to enter the DNS Server IP address in the "INTNETADR" keyword. To ensure this is working, ping the actual DNS Host name instead of the IP address.
