SUMMARY: Printing from Solaris 8 to Linux FC4

I got 2 responses, both of which had occurred to me, one was to ensure
that both Linux and Solaris were communicating using the same ports, the
other was to install CUPS.

Having messed with ports with limited success in the past I opted for
the more involved CUPS option which worked just fine, wish that it was
as available in Solaris 8 as it is in 9 and up.

Thanks to both

for their responses.
