NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     setupMacPrinters -	install	a Macintosh or PC printer.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/privbin/setupMacPrinters printerInfo

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     setupMacPrinters is a privileged command that installs a printer
     connected to a Macintosh or a NetWare server. After the installation, the
     installed printer can be administered by the Printer Manager and will
     work like a general printer connected to an SGI machine. The Macintosh or
     NetWare server needs to be	on the same network as the SGI machine.

     The printerInfo string includes all the configuration information needed
     in	the installation. If it	is a Macintosh printer,	printerInfo should
     have an "a:" as its prefix. If it is a PC printer,	the prefix is "n:".
     The format	of printerInfo is described below:

     To	install	a Macintosh printer:

     "a:-createq <local	printer	name> -O <real printer name> -Z	<AppleTalk

     To	remove a Macintosh printer:

     "a:-deleteq <local	printer	name>"

     To	install	a PC printer:

     a:p:<print	queue>:<real printer name>@<NetWare sevrer>:<local printer

     To	remove a PC printer:

     a:r:<print	queue>:<real printer name>@<NetWare sevrer>:<local printer

CAVEATS    [Toc]    [Back]

     setupMacPrinters will not successfully install Macintosh printers if
     AppleTalk software	is not running on the SGI machine. Similarly, NetWare
     must be running in	order to install a PC printer.
