what Unix are you using?

by robo_dev In reply to Configure Network Printer ...

the typical syntax to setup a remote printer is not what you have listed.

For example, if you want to access printer1 on server1 and you want it called printer2 on your system, enter
lpadmin -p printer2 -s server1!printer1

SUN Solaris 9

by chloelee In reply to what Unix are you using?

i'm using sun solaris 9, actually it's local printer connect to the network IP 97.0.0.131. 1 network IP only connect to 1 printer.

i did try successfully in my development machine with the same IP but failed in production machine. these same machine are using the same Sun Solaris 9 and i did setup the printer with same command... i'm wondering why it doesn't work in my production machine?!

Development machine:
# ping 97.0.0.132
97.0.0.132 is alive
# lpadmin -p uv3_it -s 97.0.0.132
# lpstat -lp uv3_it
printer uv3_it faulted printing uv3_it-0. enabled since Mar 13 18:28 2008. avail
