For Solaris 7 to access to the network printer, you need to find out the IP
of the printer,you can run "admintool" (GUI) to access to the remote  printer
see instructions in:

http:Q_20545367.html#8108118

or
run "lpadm" command line to add the printer, eg:

lpadmin -p printer-queue -o protocol=bsd,dest=hostname -v /dev/null
         -m netstandard -T PS -I postscript

enable printer-queue
accept printer-queue

man lpadmin
to learn more details.
