I am relatively new to HP-UX.  I was trying to setup a network printer using SAM.  When it attempted to load HP's JetDirect utility, it said that it was not installed.  How does one install JetDirect?

Thanks

Hi wilch101,

    You don't need to use HP's JetDirect utility for UNIX, all you need
to do is find out the IP add of the printer. if you know the IP of the printer
you do "telnet to the IP" , once you login in the JetDirect, type in:/
verify the printer settings.  (write done the host name, if you don't like to
print banner page, disable it )

    Then you edit your /etc/hosts file, to add the printer infor to the file, just treat it as an UNIX box in your network ( you can give the printer
server a good name, eg photocopy-rm, as long as you put the correct
IP in the file).

    Then you just need to use your adm tools available on your system
to access to a remote printer.

     Cheers!

yuzh
