Printer on digital unix

How can I configure a printer on digital unix 4.0D?

We need a manual, to do this.

Thank you.

I believe Digital UNix used the BSD print spooler. In which case the following link may be of help.

This is the 4.0F version of the System Administartion Manual in PDF format. You find all printing related stuf in chapter 10.
I don't remember if telnet printing was already supported in v4.0D

Anyway, this should answer most of your questions.

Re: Printer on digital unix

Have a look at this man 8 page it is mostly there

man lprsetup

lprsetup is just mostly an executable that let you add,modify,delete printer to the printcap file

Smile I will feel the difference
