check "man printers.conf" for details or try the "admintool" to setup your
printer.

Your question is very vague.  It has been answered for several
makes and models of network printers over the past three years
in this newsgroup.  Archives of the group can be found at the
http://groups.google.com/ web site.

If you post the make and model of your network printer, then
perhaps someone like myself can suggest the exact commands
to set Solaris up to use it.

Depending on your  printer and your needs, maybe you're done
already. Try:

  lp -d printer.ip.addr:text filename

The easiest thing to do is install HP's JetDirect software. Otherwise,
brosw google for Greg Andrews and also have a read of the Solaris FAQ,
and you'll probably find all that you need to know. Probably the
trickiest part is if the printer in non-Postscript, in which case you'll
probably need to install ghostscript.

What happens if you have lead in your pants as well as lead in your pencil?

 
 
 

1. Printing to a tcpip printer under Solaris 7 (intel)

try this:
first remove the old queue:
        # lpadmin -x unix-blf
recreate the queue :
        # lpadmin -p unix-blf   -s unix-blf
enable the queue
        # accept unix-blf
        # enable unix-blf
 print test
        # lp -d unix-blf  /etc/hosts

there are many ways to configure a printer, this is the simpliest for your
setup.
