i would like to print from my freebsd 2.2.6 machine to a solaris 2.6 host.
now i thought that this involves only to add an entry in /etc/printcap
for my "remote" printer such as:
remote|hp laserjet 5si: \
and off you go.
on the solaris machine the port administrator command tells me and i guess that
the print server is supposingly listening
PMTAG PMTYPE SVCTAG FLGS ID <PMSPECIFIC>
tcp listen lp - root
- - p - /var/spool/lp/fifos/listenS5 #
tcp listen lpd - root
\x00020203000000000000000000000000 - p - /var/spool/lp/fifos/listenBSD #
tcp listen 0 - root
\x00020ACE000000000000000000000000 - c - /usr/lib/saf/nlps_server #
now, after lpc restart remote tells me
lpd[xxx]: /dev/lp: no such file or directory.
which is correct, but i thought i dont need one?
now when i make a dummy device the error message disappears, but printing still
any help would greatly be appreciated.
