1. Help installing a network printer on RH 6.1


I'm hoping you could give me a hand with setting up a
printer through the local network.  That is, I have
three machines with RedHat 6.1, all of them connected
in a local network.  I have a printer attached to one
of the machines, and want to make it available to the
other machines.

Sounds pretty easy, but it's not working!

I use printtool in one of the machines that don't have
the printer attached, I click on ADD, then select
"Network Printer".  It asks me the remote host's IP
(no problem with that, I just put -- the
machine with the printer), and the remote queue.

I assumed that in there, I should put the name of the
printer when I installed it.  So I did.  I wrote
lpHPLJ5  (that's the name of the printer -- i.e.,
I would print text files with the command:

% lpr -PlpHPLJ5 text_file.txt

(from the machine with the printer, of course)

Is that what I was supposed to do??   I did that, it
didn't complain, but it doesn't work.

I called the printer lpHP in the machine where I
set up the network printer.  So, I issue the command:

% lpr -PlpHP text_file.txt

And I should expect that file to be sent to the
printer lpHPLJ5 in the other machine.  Am I on the
right track?

Any hints?

Thanks a bunch!
