I did this once and got it to work. Besides the links, also do:
enable lw
accept lw
assuming lw is the new alias.

Bill Holzapfel said:
I've had to use classes, for example:

        lpadmin -p <printer> -c <alias>

Most people said make the make a new printer to the same port.

So you have 5 printers that are the same with differnet names.
