You should be able to make the printer work fairly well with ghostscript, see hhttp://www.linuxprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Canon-BJC-265SP for more information. I can't tell if the modem is a winmodem oor not (not enough info in the question). If it's not a wwinmodem and it's configured to be a standard COM port then SSolaris ought to ba able to use it.

If you're willing to spend $45, vividata sells some really neat print software for Solaris.  It's basically a GUI overdrive for ghostscript, and works great.  Well worth the cost, IHMO. (www.vividata.com)

For your modem, check out http://www.kempston.org/solaris/connect.html

Much of the info in the Kempston site is somewhat dated, though it will work.  If you can positively determine the device your modem uses, the following script should work:

(assume ISP dial in number is 123-456-7890, isp account is "joe", password is "joepasswd", modem is on /dev/cua/a) This whole mess below is a one-line command.  You must be root to run this script.

# ...call this thing /usr/sbin/go...
#!/usr/bin/sh
route -f;
/usr/bin/pppd connect '/usr/bin/chat -v "" ATDT1234567890 CONNECT "" ogin: joe word: joepasswd' /dev/cua/a 115200 -detach debug modem crtscts defaultroute &
Good luck, happy hacking.
