fakeprint is possible under sco? - SCO

hi all I have a printer that have the network card and I would like to print from some sco openserver using this printer. Is there the possibility to make a "fakeprint" system? 4 exaple, my users are usually to launch the command lp -o nobanner -dlp1 doent_to_print.ext Is there the possibility to make something like lp -o noabnner -dIP_OF_MY_PRINTER doento_to_print.ext ? Sorry 4 my english but I think U understand all the same. Greetings Francesco Cabigliera...

    Default fakeprint is possible under sco?

    hi all
    I have a printer that have the network card and I would like to print
    from some sco openserver using this printer.
    Is there the possibility to make a "fakeprint" system?
    4 exaple, my users are usually to launch the command
    lp -o nobanner -dlp1 doent_to_print.ext
    Is there the possibility to make something like
    lp -o noabnner -dIP_OF_MY_PRINTER doento_to_print.ext ?
    Sorry 4 my english but I think U understand all the same.

    The standard OpenServer print system supports remote networked printers.
    (there's nothing really "fake" about the way this is done).

    You don't mention the make and model of printer & network card. Most of
    them support the "LPD" print method. Use "scoadmin printer" and set up a
    "remote printer".

    Many networked printers support direct printing through a TCP port. This
    is the "netcat" method preferred by most OpenServer experts. See

    Normally you would assign the printer a name rather than use its
    IP-address as a destination. For example "SalesLaser". You have to first
    configure the printing system to recognise whatever follows -d.

    You can also make nobanner the default and provide a system default
    printer to simplify the commands that people type ("lp filename").

    No idea what you really want but see:

    See if one of those rings a bell.
