Need Help Setting Up Remote IP Printing from Mainframe

Need Help Setting Up Remote IP Printing from Mainframe

Post by Alex Durret » Thu, 10 Jun 1999 04:00:00

 I want to print to a file on my HP9000 from a remote mainframe
computer using TCP/IP. I may need to convert the file from EBCDIC to
ASCII and rename it at the same time. What is the best way to
accomplish this? Also, if I need to receive several dozen files at
once and do the same to them, is there a better way than setting up a
pseudo printer for each one? Any help would be appreciated. Realtively
new to Unix, so please be explicit with your responses.



1. need help on setting up a remote print queue.


Does anyone know how to set up a remote print queue on
a Sun SS1000 running Solaris 2.3 (client DNS only) to print
to a printer which is currently attached to a non-Sun machine?

I tried using the following command

        lpadmin -p localprintername -s remotehostname!remoteprintername

and got the error message

        UX:lpadmin: ERROR: System "remotehostname" does not exist.
                   TO FIX: Use the "lpsystem -l" command to list
                           all known systems.

and the lpsystem -l only shows the following

        System:                     +
        Type:                       s5
        Connection timeout:         never
        Retry failed connections:   after 10 minutes
        Comment:                    Allow all connections

Can anyone help me!
