If i look at your question correctly then you have to use whitespace after -n parameter.

The correct syntax is:

lp -d printername -nX filename

eg:
lp -n2 myfile
will print 2 copies of myfile to the default printer

It works with printer direct connet to a Sun box or printer to a Solaris printer
server.

It doesn't work for some HP Laserject printer with Jet Direct NIC, eg, LaserJet
4050N, or LaserJet 2300DN.

The workaround is to download a2ps and psutils from:
http://sunfreeware.com/

It allow to to print multiple copies to the HP printers.
