Printers

We have new Xerox Phaser 3635 printers. On HPUX, is there a command to add the queues other than GUI interface, xpadmin? Please suggest...

Thank you...

Re: Printers

I used the following command:

# /opt/hpnpl/bin/addqueue -q -h -i 257 -L AUTO -b off

Looks like few post scripts are not printing.

Re: Printers

Sanjeev, Thank you for the response. I know I can add queue with manual entries, like I added with xpadmin. I am asking with one full command, so that I can setup the script.

Re: Printers

Sanjeev,

Also, I want to add the network queue not the remote queue. We don't have the print server. So please assist me with lpadmin command.
