Using HP-UX 11.i, I would like to print remotely to a IBM 4247 impact printer on another network.  I already have a HP printer working on the same network using HP jetdirect.  The problem is how should I go about adding the IBM  printer?  The IBM has an integrated nic but I'm not able to communicate to it using HP Jetdirect.  Any ideas would be appreciated!

Hi myker, here're what you need to do:

1) Find out the IP of your IBM 4247 impact printer (NIC), and type to telnet/ping
    to  the  printer from your HP box to verify your HP box can see the network
    priinter first.

2) Login to your HP-UX box as root (or su as root), edit /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).

3) Use your adm tools available on your system (eg sam) to access to a remote
    printer.
 

   Good luck
