lpsystem -t bsd system-name [remote-printer-name???]

Post by Rob Franci » Thu, 09 May 1996 04:00:00



I am running Solaris 2.5 and from the FAQ was able to get printing to an
HP JetDirect card pretty easily.  I just did a:

lpsystem -t bsd hp4
[and so on from the FAQ]

Works just fine, I can print.  But I've got that annoying issue of
line feeds not getting acknowledged by the printer.  I know in
an lpr system, if I set the remote printer (rp=text), that solves
the problem.

Is there any way with lpsystem to specify the remote printer name?

I tried:
#lpsystem -t bsd hp4
"hp4" has been modified.
#lpadmin -p text -s hp4.corp.dti.net
#accept text
destination "text" now accepting requests
#enable text
printer "text" now enabled

This didn't make any difference.  I tried playing around with the
configuration file in /etc/lp/printers too, no dice.

Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated!

lpadmin -p lex -s lex\!printer -T PS -I ""

In the above line I'm specifying the remote printer name, in your
case it would be hp4\<something>

man lpadmin for complete details.

To specify a different remote printer name use UUCP notation:

lpadmin -p lp -s hp4.cort.dti.net!text

will connect your local printer "lp" to the printer "text" on hp4

1. Two names for one printer using BSD print system?

Hi,

Can someone tell me if it is possible two have a nickname for a
printer. I want something similair to what /etc/printcap allows:

apple_ps_80_1|mus|MUS|cim_iig|CIM_IIG|cim_2g|CIM_2G:\
       :defs-go-here:\

How is this done in the BSD print system? I've figured a symlink

maybe one more in the spool area would do the trick (haven't tried
it yet) but I hope there's a better way. man lpadmin was not a
big help.

Thanks,

Jeroen.
