IP Printing?

» close window

The Question is:

We are in the process of installing a new printer for printing our cheques.
 The printer will have an IP address and I would like to know how to set the
 printer details up on the Alpha.  I would also like to know the difference if
 we have to set the print
er up as a telnet printer or a ucx printer.

The Answer is :

  Please start with topic (1020), and with the available TCP/IP Services
  printing documentation.
  For IP printing, you can choose to use telnet or lpr/lpd, which of these
  two printing protocols you choose does not particularly matter to TCP/IP
  Services software -- though it is possible that a particular printer may
  prefer one or the other, possibly due to the implementation details of
  the printer or the telnet or lpd server(s) within the particular printer.
