we got a printer in our office. Now I'd like to use it. I hate
configurating printers. I don't like cups. 631 is blocked.

Usually I avoid all these problems with a

cat MyVeryInterestingFile.ps | telnet IPaddressOfPrinterHere 9100

since most of the printers have that door open.

It *works*

Now, admin here is taking security a bit too seriously and it's not
possible to telnet the printer over 9100.

I was thinking of using rlpr, like

rlpr -Plp -HIPaddressOfPrinterHere MyVeryInterestingFile.ps

But I don't find rlpr in ports (4.2)

Does any of you have a workaround to print ps w/o resorting to cups?
