Many thanks for your responses. The solution was to change the
because the printers name is hp and of course there was a bug
in the second line ( :lp=.:\ ). It must be :lp=:\.

Here is my original question:

Hello Managers.
I hope this will be not a FAQ but i don't know how i can
set up a Sunos4.1.3 print client on Solaris5.3 print server.

After a lpr -Php ... command and lpq shows

server: lpd: lp: unknown printer
client: waiting for queue to be enabled on server

What can i do?
Thanks in advance and i will summarize
