How to change a serial printer on SCO un

By techless ·
I had an old printronix printer on a serial connection. It is used with legacy sw written in unibasic.
I have a Tally T2155 that I would like to install on that same line.

What has to be done to get that printer to work?

How to change a serial printer on SCO un

Basically you will need to remove the old printer from the configuration first. This is done easily. In the /usr/lib directory do a disable PRTNAME tne a reject PRTNAME then ./lpadmin -xPRTRNAME. This will remove your old printer. To install yournew printer, in scoadmin you will need to install the drivers. Go to the software section and follow the prompts to install new software. This will install the drivers and model interface for this printer. Once done in the /usr/lib directory do ./lpadmin -pPRTNAME -mMODEL INTERFACE -onobanner -v/dev/tty###
This will install your printer. Then enable PRTNAME accept PTRNAME. This is on a SCO 5.0.5
