Adding Printers

Does anyone out there have a list of required commands to add printers to a Alpha 1200 running Digital Unix V4.F Rev 1229? It has been a while since I did this. From memory I modify the host file, enter Printer IP, L50 l50 + #Comment ( then run lprsetup. This is where it becomes a little hazy........)

Thanks,
Phil.

Re: Adding Printers

For a printer directly attached to the network, you also need to put an entry for the printer in /etc/services. For details on the entire process, please see section 10.9 in the V4.0F System Administration manual, which is available at http://www.tru64unix.compaq.com/docs/base_doc/DOCUMENTATION/V40F_HTML/APS2RFTE/TITLE.HTM .

Hope this helps,
Martin
