For example: HOSTNAME

2.Create a spool directory.

For example: mkdir\var\spool\lpd\PRIFx

3.Add the printer entry to the \etc\printcap file.

For example:

Rprinter ALCXXXX:lp=:rm=HOSTNAME:rp=aux:sd=/var/spool/lpd /PRIFx

For example:

lpt -s -PRPrinter Print-File-Name


Files that exceed 1 MB may not be printed unless the -s option is used.
