My original question:
I have a Solaris 2.4 print server. I'm trying to setup Solaris 2.5
remote access to the Solaris 2.4 printers. I'm getting the
following error when I try and add a printer from the admintool:
add remote printer failed
I see this error after I have clicked "OK" in the printer creation
Any ideas would be helpful. I'll do this via lpadmin if need be.
Create another dummy printer on my print server. This forces the
system to add the bsd protocol for listening as below...
quartz% pmadm -l
PMTAG PMTYPE SVCTAG FLGS ID <PMSPECIFIC>
tcp listen lp - root - - p -
tcp listen lpd - root
\x00020203000000000000000000000000 - p - /var/spool/lp/fifos/listenBSD #
tcp listen 0 - root
\x00020ACE000000000000000000000000 - c - /usr/lib/saf/nlps_server #
zsmon ttymon ttya u root /dev/term/a I
- /usr/bin/login - 9600 ldterm,ttcompat ttya login: - tvi925 y #
zsmon ttymon ttyb u root /dev/term/b I
- /usr/bin/login - 9600 ldterm,ttcompat ttyb login: - tvi925 y #
Then my print client could talk to the print server.
Thanks to all who tried to help.
