Third-party Hardware? (PrintServer)

» close window

The Question is:

I have a old Printserver 17 printer that is currently printing through decnet
 using dcps. We need to convert to IP printing if we can. Using lps$console I
 was able to give this printsevrer a ip address and gateway address.
Can I print to this via a telnet queue and if so what port would I use. I can't
 find any doc's on this.
If I can't use a telnet queue would I use LPD or raw tcp/ip. Which of these two
 cases would work and what would I do to set up the queue and the comminucations.

The Answer is :

  A PrintServer 17 printer with an IP address can be accessed via a
  TCP/IP LPD queue, or via a DCPS CPAP or LPD queue.
  Telnet cannot be used.
  See the DCPS documentation for instructions on setting up a queue with
  IP_CPAP as the protocol.
