AS/400 Remote OUTQ on V4R4 (version 4.4) and Later

The purpose of this document is to assist you in configuring your System i (iSeries, AS/400) to print through RPM. It is intended for AS/400 and network administrators. For these instructions, you need to know the IP address or DNS hostname of your computer where RPM is installed.


Creating a Queue in RPM

  1. In RPM, choose Create from the Queue menu.
  2. Enter the name of the new queue you wish to add and click Create. The new queue will be created.
  3. Highlight the queue and choose Settings from the Queue menu. Add the action(s) necessary to produce your desired results. For instance, if you want to archive the file to disk, add Archive to disk. If you want to print the documents, choose a Text printer action.
  4. Now add any transforms you require. The steps in the next section, when followed exactly, require an SCS to text markup transform. If you are using a Text printer action, no further transforms are necessary. If you are archiving the files to disk, you could use either Text markup to PDF or Remove text markup transform.

Note: These instructions are intended to provide only a brief introduction on RPM configuration. For more detailed instructions, refer to the RPM manual.

AS/400 Remote OUTQ on V4R4 (version 4.4) and Later

To print to RPM from a System i (iSeries, AS/400, etc.), a remote output queue (OUTQ) is used.

  • To create the remote OUTQ, use the CRTOUTQ command.
  • To modify an existing OUTQ, use the CHGOUTQ command.

The remote OUTQ should have the following settings. Substitute appropriate values in place of [OBJECT_NAME], [RPM_QUEUE], and [IP_ADDRESS].
