I would like to specify the port number in an LPR command. Currently I use LPR -P ipaddress:queueName. How would I specify a port address?

Hmmm, Solaris uses the SysV printing system and doesn't have an lpr command. So I don't know where you are getting the lpr command from. Could you provide any more information?

why don't you use:

   lp -d queueName filename

   to print.

   edit your /etc/hosts to add the remote printer server and use admintool to add remote printer for your workstation.

I'm not sure that I understand why you accepted that comment as an answer. I was really trying to figure out if you were really using lpr to print with on a Solaris system. Such a thing is possible, even though lpr wouldn't be a native command. It could be that someone has installed a BSD print system or it could be an alias.
