Device Naming for AS/400 hosts-TE

I have problem naming devices on my AS/400.
answer PowerTerm allows to name devices during 5250 sessions. You are able to print AS/400 jobs to a local PC printer, using all the controls available to printers connected directly to the AS/400.  However, there have been problems depending on the AS/400 operating system.  If the AS/400 has a CISC operating system, 3.2 will work.  If the AS/400 has a RISC operating system, 3.2, 3.7,4.1 or 4.2 will work.   In any case, if the operating system is different from the supported version, a patch can be obtained from IBM to upgrade to a workable version.
