Original mail is at the end.
The main reason I could not get the printer to print was
because /dev/term/b had an incorrect eeprom setting.
Alex de la Salle (Alex.De-La-Salle@nmp,nokia.com) pointed me
in the right direction by pointing me to the Sun Info Doc (16308)
which holds quite a lot of information on printing.
The ttyb port had [somehow] been set to:
I reset it to be true and rebooted.
Then, after a small tweak of the /etc/lp/interfaces/<bhlpt> file
all is well and the Genicom now prints :-))
Now all I need to do is to get a better banner page......
Thanks also to David Evans (DJEVANS@au.oracle.com) who suggested
for information (there's lots of it!!)
and to David Harrington (firstname.lastname@example.org) for some help
This is probably simple, but I can't find the answer
anywhere here. I've checked out our on-line answer books
and looked around the Sun docs but...
OK - We are upgrading all our suns to Sol2 and I've just
upgraded the sun box that we use as a print host to Sol2.
It has a Genicom printer attached to ttyb and I used to
have the "local" flag set in /etc/ttytab so that carrier
detect was not checked for; it worked fine for the most
part (I may install a better cable some time later....)
However now I'm running Sol2 I cant get the printer to work.
I suspect I need the Sol2 equivalent of the "local" flag,
but I've not found it.
I've [sort of] played around with Admintool in an attempt to
see if I could get it to work, but it's not a Terminal or a
Modem... HELP :-(
It may be that I have to configure the port, etc., etc., but
I haven't a clue what I have to do under Sol2.
Surely someone out there has a similar set up and can help??
Many thanks for any/all help; of course I'll post a SUMMARY :-))
