has anybody got an example of a printcap file w/ an entry for a standalone network printer? i'd be grateful for one.


Here's mine - been working for years:

lp|snow|snowball|lj|ps|HP ColorLaserJet 4550N:\
        :sh:\
        :sd=/var/spool/output/lpd:\
        :mx#0:\
        :lp=:rm=snowball:rp="auto":

The printer's hostname is snowball, resolved via /etc/hosts at first and
now via internal DNS.

This printer understands Postscript and plain text, and has always Just Worked with no CUPS, filters or any of that stuff needed.
