printer setup on Solaris 8
Posted on 2006-10-19
I'm currently working on a disaster recovery trial, part of which involves setting up a printer on Solaris 8.
I can look at the current live setup and try to mimic it but I'm not to sure exactly how to go about doing it.
The main problem is a file in /dev. Below is a snapshot of the file as it exists on the live server, but I'm not sure how to replicate it on the DR box.

I know this file is part of the printer setup but I don't know how to create "character special" files. Could you guys explain the significance of this file, what it does and how I create it?
