Setting up Solaris to print to port 9100
This page was provided by Matthew Klestrup, email@example.com (Thanks
This describes how to set up a local Postscript printer on a Solaris
print server, pointing to port 9100 on a ColorPASS Z60, which already is
added to the hosts file as z60. The new printer is called z60tcp, and
accessed from a UNIX client.
Do this from the shell as root:
lpadmin -p z60tcp -v /dev/null
lpadmin -p z60tcp -i /usr/lib/lp/model/netstandard
lpadmin -p z60tcp -o dest=z60:9100 -o protocol=tcp -o timeout=5
lpadmin -p z60tcp -I any -T PS
Rick's note : As of August 14 2000 the only Canon RIPS with port 9100
are the Z40, Z60, Z90.
Updated October 30,2000 - New models - iR5000, Z20e, Z40e.
