I have 2 Sparc Stations (Solaris 2.5.1) and a HP LaserJet printer.
I want to install a remote printer by using commands (lpsystem, ...).
Can you tell me the complete commands I have to use in order
to initialize :
A) my print server station,
B) my print client (2nd station).
I HAVE TO use commands (not admintool) to be included in a
installation script  Kit.
(These 2 stations are linked via Ethernet and the printer is on bpp0
parallel port of my print server station).

       THANK YOU VERY MUCH

There is an easier way: use the admintool to install the printer,
both on the server as well as on the client machine.
In the admintool choose Printers from the Browse menu. On your
server you will then choose Add > Local Printer ... from the Edit menu (on the client it is Add > Access to Printer ...).
I think the forms which pop up are pretty much self-explanatory. If you still have questions, drop me a comment or a mail.
