HP's hpnp - Sun Solaris

HP only has downloads for Sol 2.5,6,7,8 But I was wondering if anyone has tried the download for 2.8 on Solaris 9. Stuart Dr. Stuart A. Weinstein Ewa Beach Institute of Tectonics "To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a creationist"...

    If HP have written their code correctly, the vesrion for
    Solaris 8 should work just fine on Solaris 9 and later.

    From what I remember its a bootp server and a filter.
    I use a networked hp-printer here today without it.

    There are some issues with hpnp under Solaris (not only Solaris 9).
    From my notes:

    There is a bug in the net_ljcolor script installed by hpnp in
    /usr/lib/lp/mode/hpnpl/. It won't print any postscript files
    on printers using this model script. The fix is:

    # cd /usr/lib/lp/model/hpnpl
    # diff net_ljcolor.orig net_ljcolor
    5150c5150
    < echo "$ascii">>/psnup
    --- 

    When running hppi without any printers configured yet on the
    Solaris system, it will complain about lpsched not running.
    Solaris' /etc/init.d/lp won't start lpsched if no printers
    are configured. So before adding the first printer with hppi,
    start /usr/lib/lpsched once manually.

    Solaris changed the user string supplied by lp/lpsched from
    host!user to This will look strange in hpnp's log files.
    To fix it:

    # cd /opt/hpnpl/sh
    # diff hpnp.model.orig hpnp.model
    289,290c289,290
    < user=`echo $2 | line | cut -d! -f2`
    < sysname=`echo $2 | line | cut -d! -f1`

    Take a look at the package. It has interface scripts designed for
    specific models of HP printers, compiled programs to talk to the SNMP
    service on the Jetdirect card/box and transport the print jobs to
    the printer over the network, and a group of menu-driven setup scripts
    and programs.

    It has always been far more than "a bootp server and a filter."

    Yes you can make do without it. On the other hand it makes things like setting
    up queues and managing the printer more convenient.
