Hello Sun Managers,
Thanks for the numerous replies. The trick worked
for the printer and I'm able to print with the suggested
printer port /dev/ecpp0. I just added the printer to the
unix box using admintool with the printer port as /dev/ecpp0.
After so many days of my breaking heads over this, I now feel there
there is some place in the sun documentation on the web , where
its clearly distingushed and explained in detail the differences
in configuration between the PCI based machines and the Sbus based
Thanks to the follwong people for their replies:
