Hello,

Is it possible at all to print to a printer attached to a HP JetDirect Print
Server?
I'm running both RH5.2 & SuSE 6.0.
Any help greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Yes.  This is covered in Section 11.5 of the Printing HOWTO; Section
11.6 will probably also apply unless you have a Postscript printer.

Note that the best way to print to it, if it doesn't support the lpd
protocol directly, is to use LPRng, which includes built-in support
for stuffing print jobs into random TCP ports.
