Unable to print via lp in Solaris 9
Posted on 2004-08-12
I am setting up a new Solaris 9 v240 server. I am trying to print to either a network (IP) or a serial printer. Addressing the serial first, I am able to cat /etc/hosts > /dev/dty/b016s and the hosts file prints on the printer. If I try to lp -dF1 /etc/hosts the file spools in lpstat but does not print. If I run a lpstat -t is see the print job but also see the following.
printer F1 waiting for auto-retry. available
exec exit fault
