Printing to a Networked Printer

(System Sparc 1 running Solaris 2.5.1)
(Print Server Sparc 10 running SunOS 4.1.3)

I'm having problems getting my Solaris workstation to print to
a SunOS 4.1.3 printer server.  I can ping the print server and
the print server can ping me.  But when I try to print I never
get connected to the print server.  Is there anyone else using
this type of setup and does it work for you???  I have contacted
Sun with this problem and we went through the entire setup together
and it still didn't work and their answer was that "It should work,
it must be a networking problem."


1. HP network printer and LP print Service local printing

Hi all,

Operating System: Solaris 2.5, 2.6 / OpenWindows
Hardware: Sun Sparc

Printer: HP LaserJet 4000N with HP JetDirect PrinterServer
Software: HP JetAdmin for UNIX (Version D.05.15)

By means of JetAdmin I have added a local printer to a Sun Sparc
Server, and that has been tested to be ok.

Question: Is it so, that if I would like to share that printer among
several work stations and to use local printing, then I have to
install the entire JetAdmin on each and add a local printer???

I have tried to "share -F nfs -o 'anon=0,rw' /opt/hpnp" the
installed JetAdmin directory  and locally "mounted with "rw".

I can start up JetAmin, answer the proper questions,
but when the installation procedure starts, it continues with error
messages, and the installation shells don't work correctly. No local
spooler has been added correctly!

With admintool I can add a remote printer (on the server). That works
ok, but that's not what I want (with a network-printer).
