Hi Mates at sumanagers...

Thanks a bunch for your helps to subject as above. Finally I found
the Log which recorded about the problem (It's been happened before).


Problem:    How could I setup permanently a network printer as landscape
            printer ?? (without interve the hardware, it lets as default)

            Config:  Solaris 5.6 running in E450/E3500 box
                     HP JetAdmin Utility for UNIX (Rev. D.02.10)
                     HP LaserJet 8100

Solution:   1.  Define the networked printer in /etc/hosts
                # more /etc/hosts
                # ....
                # ....
                #   HP8100

            2.  Define the spooler thru JetAdmin (for example HP8100L)

                   *                  MAIN MENU                    *
                   *  HP JetAdmin Utility for UNIX (Rev. D.02.10)  *

                  1) Configuration (super-user only):
                     - configure printer, add printer to spooler


                  5) Printer Status:
                     - show printer status, location, and contact

            3.  Make sure those above works fine

            4.  Go to the /etc/lp/interfaces/model.orig/HP8100L

            5.  Modify the file using vi, then type /$4

            6.  insert into options="Landscape raw lpi8 fp12"

            7.  insert into options="$ options $5"

I also attach captured image of those modification (HP8100.jpg)

One thing you can do is install HP JetDirect SW on your Solaris box,
(HP moves it around on their website, you'll find it with a search)
set up the Solaris box as a spooler for the printer.

This will set up HP's filter script (/etc/lp/interfaces).

% lp -d printername -o landscape
% lp -d printername -o portrait
