Printing a Test File

To verify that the printer and print server connections are correct,
print a test file.
1. At the UNIX system prompt type:
lpr -Pprinter_name file_name
where printer_name is the designated printer and
file_name refers to the file to be printed.
Examples (for BSD-based systems):
Text File: lpr -Ptext1 textfile
PCL File: lpr -Praw1 pclfile.pcl
PostScript File: lpr -Praw1
HP-GL/2 File: lpr -Praw1 hpglfile.hpg
For HP-UX systems, substitute lp -d for lpr -P.
2. To get print status, type the following at the UNIX prompt:
lpq -Pprinter_name
where printer_name is the designated printer.
Examples (for BSD-based systems):
lpq -Ptext1
lpq -Praw1
For HP-UX systems, substitute lpstat for lpq -P to get print
This completes the process for configuring the HP Jetdirect print
server to use LPD.
