new printers

I was trying to print some text files with my UNIX machine but I had some troubles. A message tells me that the destination in unknown. I used the sysadmsh command to add a new printer but I must be doing something wrong, because when a new printer is installed and I try to print the system says that the new printer is not accepting new inputs  since the date I have created it. My system is a System V release 3.2. If it's possible I would thank some examples.

Well, the only time I've used this command is in SCO amd I don't use this everyday so this is what I can tell you. The program sysadmsh will display help by pressing F1. You of course need to be root to run this and at certain times you must be on the console or in single user mode. Also it supports the variable SA_PRINT which defines the default sysadmsh printer. You might want to try these commands for troubleshooting; lpc (stat, start, enable) and lpstat -a. See if the queue is started or enabled...

Well, perhaps I didn't say that I'm working with SCO UNIX. Sometimes the F1 or F3 -or others- keys can't help user. Just tell me something. What must I say when system ask me what's the name of the device to wich the printer is connected?
