LPD on UNIX Systems

Configuring Print Queues for BSD-based Systems
Edit the /etc/printcap file to include the following entries:
printer_name|short_printer_name:\
:lp=:\
:rm=node_name:\
:rp=remote_printer_name_argument:\ (this should be
text, raw, binps, auto, or user-defined)
:lf=/usr/spool/lpd/error_log_filename:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/printer_name:
where printer_name identifies the printer to the user,
node_name identifies the printer on the network, and
remote_printer_name_argument is the print queue
designation.
For more information on printcap, see the printcap man page.
Example: Printcap Entries for ASCII or Text Printers

:rm=laserjet1:\
:rp=text:\
