lpd and lpsched?

I have a printer connected directly to a SGI box running IRIX 5.3.  Currently we are running lpsched to manage the print jobs.  I need to be able to run lpd as well.  I'm trying to connect the printer to a Windows NT server through TCP/IP, and lpd must be running in order to do this.  The Windows NT manuals say that I need to install a publicly available lpd program in order for this to work with lpsched running. How and what is the easiest way to do this?  I need to be able to keep lpsched running as well.

lpsched ***SHOULD*** be able to handle BSD style print requests
such as what an NT box would send.  The version of lpsched that
we have running under Solaris 2.5 croaks (even with version 5
of Sun's lp jumbo patch).  I suspect that this is deliberate on
the part of Microsoft seeing as how none of the major UNIX
vendors is still running BSD, but have all moved to Sys VR4.

I've never tried running both lpsched and lpd at the same time
on a given host.  I would expect them to conflict, but I don't
know.

I'm facing the same problem that you are in that we are a mixed
Solaris/NT environment and want to have one machine do all of
the print spooling in our environment.  Our printer is a
networked Apple laserwriter 600 something.  What I'm trying to
do is to find a suitable lpd print server to run on the NT
server so that it can act as the sole print spooler for my
environment.  This might be a solution for you as well.
