Adding a JetDirect printer HELP!
Hi all, this is my main problem. I add the JetDirect printer with the printconf tool, everything works fine, i'm able to print fine from client machines. Then I realized that everything I print gets recorded in an account file. This is the af: entry in the etc/printcap file. Since the company I work ata prints ALOT of files, it wouldn't be practical to have everything we print recorded. The file would grow very long, very fast. So what I thought of doing is adding a printer manually with the printcap.local file. Everything worked fine, I can see the printer through the network, but I can't send anything to print. Basically what I did was copied the entry which was created for me when I added the printer with the printconf utility and just commented out the line that said af: . Was this right? I also created the script.cfg file in /var/spool/lpd/printername/ which contains the ip and port number of the printer. This still didn't work. Anyone have any other suggestions tht would help me at all? Anything would be great, thanks!
