How do I attach a HP 2500cm to an Ultra 60 (via network) and get it to print?

Thanks,

Trav

Which version of Solaris?  And will it be a true network printer, or are you using another server as a print server?

Network printer setup from the command line:

Sun printing basics:

Or get the HP Jetdirect print installer for Solaris (The advantage being that you get printer drivers that support most of the printers functionality; There are also FAQs on the download page):

# lpadmin -p <printername> -v /dev/null -o protocol=bsd,dest=<printer-address> -T PS -I postscript -i /usr/lib/lp/model/netstandard
# accept <printername>
# enable <printername>
If you don't have a postscript printer use "-T unknown -I any" instead. <printer-address> is the
printer's IP address or a resolvable name.

To disable the banner page you may also want to
- In /etc/lp/interfaces/<printername>, set
    nobanner=yes
  and add the option
    -b
  to definition of NETPR=...

That's OK. What I've posted is valid from Solaris 2.6 up (and still for Solaris 9)

Cheers,
