The Question is:
We need to setup a remote printer. The only way to access the remote

We can ping, traceroute, telnet from that subnet to the VMS host.
Is there a file or command that's needed to add a new subnet to VMS? Or are we

or to an IP routing or configuration problem that is specific to
the subnet. DNS or router caches could be involved, obviously.
Concentrate on the subnet configuration, routing, and related IP
attributes and hardware.
