NT 3.51 ps printing, from linux

Post by Pete Hur » Thu, 31 Oct 1996 04:00:00

Hello world,

I've got a linux box running slackware 3.0 derived system, and a
MW-Windows NT server 3.51 with an attached hp5.  The hp5 has
postscript, and a postscript driver.  The linux printcap entry
looks just like the one I use to do remote printing on a, recently
demised, hp3 attached to a solaris SVR4 machine.  But the NT
machine prints the ps file as ascii source.  I tried ftping the
file onto the NT machine, but the print command didn't know what
to do with a postscript file!?!

1) How do I print a postscript file on a postscript printer with

2) How do I get it to happen remotely via a BSD-like linux box?

Thanks in advance,

1. Printing from SOLARIS on WIN NT 3.51 Network HPLJ4P Printer

I try to connect a HP Laserjet 4P printer (connected to Win NT 3.51
Server) to our SparcStation 20 running under SOLARIS 2.4.
Do I need a special application for Win NT 3.51 or is it possible to
configure it through SOLARIS.

I tried this also: lpadmin -p PRINTERNAME -s SYSTEMPRINTER
say the printer is named HPLJ4P on WinNT, and my NT-Server name is ex.
I typed:           lpadmin -p HPLJ4P -s WINNY

But this doesn't work! All helps are welcome. Thank you.
Long live the Macintosh.
