Is it possible to print mainframe dataset contents directly to a remote printer which I don't think has a logical name established for it on the mainframe I use? I have the I.P. address of the multi-functional printer. I'm seeking the proper JCL syntax (or direction) to accomplish this type of printing. I'm using a local copying utility that functions like an IEBGENER to direct the content to a JES OUTPUT destination. JES is not liking the I.P. address in my current attempts.

Hello,

Yes, it is possible to print from the mainframe to a networked printer.

If you talk with whoever supports JES printing, they can tell you which remotes have been defined - the one you want may already be defined. You may need to visit the network print admins as the printout from the mainframe may pass thru one of their servers. Lots of places print to printers not directly defined to the mainframe.

If this is an occasional opportunity, you could ftp the printout from the mainframe to your local pc, then print it from the pc to "your" printer. If this is production output for some user(s), i'd recommend not getting in "the loop".
