Make sure that you have LPD daemon running via any X software on PC. Then adding remote printer and printing on it will work.... I am currently using eXceed to print on local PC connected printer. any X server/client software will work... another option is to install SAMBA... HOWTO guide will direct you how to configure printer on UNIX box

A few clarifications, please - if you still don't have this working. If you do an lpstat, what does the status of the queue show? Does it show your print request in the queue? Are you trying to send print thru an application via a PC? Have you triedsending a print request via qprint on the command line of the AIX system? Can you ping the IP address and / or hostname of the Laserjet? If you've started the lpd and it still isn't working, any additional info like that would be helpful.

I just went back and re-read - I'm sorry, I guess I missed the part about the printer being attached to the PC.. but is it "physically" attached to the pc or is it attached to the network, with its own IP? It would still be helpful to try sending a print request via command line on AIX to see if it'll work thru AIX and not thru the PC. I've set up many HP Laserjets as network attached printers to AIX, and a few network printers as "remote" printers.. will be glad to try to help if I can.
