Chapter 11. Administering Printing

The printing service consists of the LP print service software, any print filters (programs that process data before printing) you provide, the hardware (the printer, workstation, and network connections), and the Solaris Print Manager tool that you can use to administer printing.

This chapter briefly describes the LP print service; it lists the files, daemons, and logs used by the LP print service; describes tools available for administering printing; provides steps for setting up print servers and clients; and describes the basic commands used for printing.
