I have tried to set up an IBM 4029 Series Laser printer on Ultra Enterprise 3000 running Solaris 2.5.1 HW 04/97 with no luck. I have tried everything from admintool to the command line and still no luck. The printer will not print and the lp service tells me that it cannot initialize the port that the printer is on. How do I set up this particular printer so that it runs perfectly?

  Hi...make sure that you have the package SUNWter installed...to find out use "pkginfo |grep SUNWter".  If you don't, install it from your CD and admintool should then have no problem adding it...Adam
