NETPRINT(1M)			Printing Tools			  NETPRINT(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     netprint -	Submit lp print	job to remote spooler via a network connection

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     netprint [-wv] -n net-type	-h host	-p printer <b>-t convert-type request-id

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     netprint sends a print request to a printer on another host.  netprint is
     used in the lp model file /var/spool/lp/model/netface to submit lp	print
     jobs to remote printers.

USAGE    [Toc]    [Back]

     -w	       Wait for	job to complete	on remote host before exiting.	This
	       is how netprint is normally used	in an lp model file.  If
	       netprint	does not wait then as soon as it returns the lp
	       spooler will process the	next print job and send	the files to
	       the print server	(possibly causing the print server to run out
	       of disk space when files	are sent to the	print server faster
	       then they can be	printed).  The -w option "syncs" the client
	       print spooler to	the print server to help reduce	the chance of
	       a print server running out of disk space.

     -v	       Specifies verbose output	for debugging purposes.

     -n	net-type
	       Name of dso to use to communicate with remote system.  Valid
	       names for net-type are found in the file
	       /usr/lib/print/netdso/DSOLIST.  Each dso	implements the
	       functions necessary to communicate with the remote system (the
	       bsd dso communicates using the BSD LPR protocols, etc).

     -h	host   Hostname	or IP address of the remote system to submit the print
	       job too.

     -p	printer
	       Print spooler name on the remote	host to	submit the print job

     -t	convert-type
	       convert-type specifies a	file type to convert the files to
	       before they are sent to the remote spooler. ROUTEPRINT(1) is
	       used to do the file conversion.	See the	ROUTEPRINT(1) man page
	       for more	information on conversion types.

	       lp spooler request id.  This is used to determine the files to
	       be sent to the remote system.  This is the only way to specify
	       files to	print using netprint.
