Setting up network printing - Sun Solaris

I am having problems with setting up a network printing. I have followed the instructions from suns site but when I send a job to print and I run lpstat I just see the job sitting in queue and it never prints. Here is how I have setup the printing: lpadmin -p queue_name -v /dev/null lpadmin -p queue_name -i netstandard lpadmin -p queue_name -o dest=10.192.144.4 -o protocol=tcp -o enable queue_name accept queue_name Question: Do I also need to have the queue-name printer listed in the host file. This is all I know about the system it is running SunOS 5.8 ...

    Default Setting up network printing

    I am having problems with setting up a network printing.
    I have followed the instructions from suns site but when I send a job
    to print and I run lpstat I just see the job sitting in queue and it
    never prints.
    Here is how I have setup the printing:

    lpadmin -p queue_name -v /dev/null
    lpadmin -p queue_name -i netstandard
    lpadmin -p queue_name -o dest=10.192.144.4 -o protocol=tcp -o

    enable queue_name
    accept queue_name

    Question: Do I also need to have the queue-name printer listed in the
    host file.
    This is all I know about the system it is running SunOS 5.8 and I only
    access to the command line.

    You mean "-m netstandard", don't you? -i requires the full
    path to the interface file, or that you are in the /etc/lp/model
    directory to find the interface.
     

    You've omitted the argument to that third -o. What is it?

    Chances are good that the error is the "protocol=tcp".
    Most network devices don't support a RAW TCP connection
    on port 515 (the default).

    Try: lpadmin -p queue_name -o protocol=bsd
    and see if printing works better.

    By the way, it's also very useful to say what kind of printer
    you have and/or the thing that attaches the printer to the
    network (internal network card, external print server box,
    Unix or NT print server, etc.).

    I don't know what kind of printer you are using, but for network
    printing it needs to be assigned an ip address and needs to be added
    to your host file. Most of the time you are going to have to go to
    the printer and on the panel, enter the ip address, etc.. If you are
    using an HP printer you can use jetadmin to set up the print queues,
    spooler etc on your unix system. I would do this to 1 unix system and
    set up a queue for each network printer making this system a print
    server. Then I would go to the unix clients and with admintool, add
    access to remote printer, add which ever printer you want to use and
    the system name of the print server.
