Setting up networked printers

Hi, I'm going to setup some printers attached to the network, using SMH with X Windows. Could anyone point me to the right manuals at docs.hp.com - or provide links to useful information?
We're on hp-ux 11i v3.
Thanks in advance.

You will probably want to take a look at HP JetDirect Printer Installer (HPPI):

Re: Setting up networked printers

Hi Pete,

Thanks for you reply. Yes, this is exactly the tool. But I would really much like to see the documentation for this system, if it exists.
There is a built-in help, but it is pretty terse...

Any ideas are most appreciated, thanks again.

Re: Setting up networked printers

Hi,
I already had the JD Printer installed and running (should have stated that, sorry) - but needed the documentation.
Now it all works, thanks for your kind assistance!
