  Thanks, to everyone that replied.
  The answer was to get a copy of JetAdmin for Solaris from HP's
  Some folk's misunderstood my question or I did not explain it fully.
  I have a local printer off of /dev/term/a and wanted to add a remote
  network printer.
  I did download the JetAdmin software and installed it, but I still
  get the same output from lpstat-t. I can print to the network printer
  without problem, I just can not get the status of the queue or state
  of the printer.
  Again Thanks to everyone.
