Hello Sun Managers,
        Thanks for the numerous replies. The trick worked
for the printer and I'm able to print with the suggested
printer port /dev/ecpp0. I just added the printer to the
unix box using admintool with the printer port as /dev/ecpp0.

After so many days of my breaking heads over this, I now feel there
 there is some place in the sun documentation on the web , where
its clearly distingushed and explained in detail the differences
in configuration between the PCI based machines and the Sbus based
Any ideas???

Thanks to the follwong people for their replies:
