Ok, we have just got one of these HP Laserjet 4Si MX printers on its
own remote ethernet card. It's got two trays and one of them is
duplex. It's quite easy to configure from windows to use all of the
features, but for the life of us we can not configure duplex and tray
selection in our printcap entries on Linux and sun stations. We can use
it at the moment with just the top tray and single sided. Has any body
managed to configure the duplex and trays in their printcap?, or know how
to do this? I would be grateful
if some one could help me or point me in the right direction.

P.S. One other problem with all the HP Laser's we have connected remotely
(All independent on there own ethernet card) is that lpq hangs when the
queue is occupied, so we don't get any queues. By the way, the only time it
works is when the printer queue is empty and we get
"JetDirect lpd: no entries". Any ideas here ?

We have just installed `hpdriver' from Lawrence LeMay on some
of our BSD-based printer systems (although not Linux).  It
works well for us.

1. HP Laserjet 4Si MX and SPARC 10


We have a HP Laserjet 4Si MX that have a HP JetDirect network interface card, the printer is setup as print server for PCs(Netware) and Macintosh(Appletalk) on our 10BaseT LAN currently, now we want our SPARC 10 run Solaris 2.3 able to print to this printer also.

Could someone point out how this can be done, or at least where I can get the doc about the setup procedure.

Thanks for any help,
