Re: How to setup printer in HP-UX

The man page for lpadmin will give you an example. But the question is not clear. Is your local system HP-UX or is the remote system HP-UX? Or are they both HP-UX? Or is a PC involved somewhere? And is the printer an enterprise HP printer or a cheap consumer inkjet? Which system has the printer?
