How to add a printer in Solaris

Here's a good post on Luo Donghua's oracle and unix blog : How to graphically add a printer in Solaris 8

If you've got a network printer...

From your Solaris system, do this (assumes printer IP is

# lpadmin -p hp3200m -s -I any

Type the following to set the default printer (assuming the printer is hp3200m):

# lpadmin -d hp3200m

You need to be sure that print services are started (/usr/lib/lpsched or the equivalent command using Service Management Facility [SMF] in the Solaris 10 OS).
