Help needed: Solaris print client to non-std printer TCP port

Greetings all,

Since Solaris 2.3 doesn't use printcap files, how do you set up such a
system as a printer client but send the job to a non-standard TCP port on
the print server?

Eg. when you set up a Solaris print client, it expects the print server's
TCP port to be 515.  How do you tell the Solaris client that the servers
TCP port is actually 3102?  I know how to do this with a printcap file,
but Solaris 2.3 doesn't use them.

Thanks,
Martin
