You can check thro SAM also.
Or Use command line to check.
Use lpstat command. Check man lpstat
Work is life, you know, and without it, there's nothing but fear and insecurity.

Hi,

# lpstat -v

For each remote printer:

# nslookup printer_name

Re: How to identify the HPUX Printer

Depends on type of printer.

If it is a network printer ( e.g. sends print directly to IP addr on printer or jetdirect )

then you can
grep PERIPH= /etc/lp/interface/*

if it is remote printer using rlp to a remote print spooler then
lpstat -p should tell you the name of the remote queue

Hi Vinay,

SAM and lpstart can use to find the printer
