Thank you very much for such a quick answer. I thought this would take 
much more time.

I understand that tn5250j is a terminal emulator for IBM AS/400. and as 
such, the terminal should tell the AS/400 where to send the printout.

I have my printer configured in CUPS and it works great.

Where is that? Is that inside TN5250J ? I cannot change the AS/400 but 
it lets me specify what device the printer is on. Should I specify 
/dev/lp0 ?

That is good news. :-)
