how to config printer driver

I have three printers, hp, canon and epson. I added them as remote printer in my hp-ux i v3. I checked folder /etc/lp/interface, there are three same script files, then there is no any files in /etc/lp/interface/netlp.asx.
I remember the printer can be config so that I can use different script file and including a file in netlp.asx, does anyone help me?

These would probably be network printers.

Re: how to config printer driver

since they are set up as remoter printers, they are "talking" to a remote print server. all of the "configuration" would be done there.

only a limited number of options are available to "lp" to pass to the remote print server.

potentially, they could be installed as "network" printers. they would need jet-direct capable network cards. and they would need to have model scripts available. the hp might, it depends on the model...some are "windows only" printers. the cannon and epson probably won't, but might be usable if they can use one of the generic model scripts, like to lj4's.

Re: how to config printer driver

you can get HP model scripts and steps from here

http://www.hp.com/pond/modelscripts/index2.html

For non-hp printers you may use net_genericprinter

/opt/hpnpl/bin/addqueue -l|grep gene
1020) HP 2500C net_genericpcl3printer
9997) Generic PCL3 Printer net_genericpcl3printer
9998) Generic printer net_genericprinter
9999) Generic plotter net_genericplotter

So in this scenario all of them have to be setup as a network printer

Re: how to config printer driver

seems to be part of an International Printing Support package. Ran across this:
docs.hp.com/en/5991-7956/5991-7956.pdf

and some references to it as "new in version 11.11"
