Starting with the Solaris 2.6 release, the printing software provides a centralized environment for setting up and managing client access to printers on a network. The Solaris printing software contains these components:
The print client software, previously only available with the Solstice AdminSuiteTM set of administration tools, provides the ability to make printers available to print clients using a name service.
Admintool, a graphical user interface used to manage printing on a local system.
The LP print service commands, a command line interface used to set up and manage printers that also provides functionality above and beyond the other print management tools.
See Chapter 11, Managing Printers, Terminals, and Modems, and System Administration Guide, Volume II for more information.
PrintTool is a software tool available in the Solaris 7 user environment. It provides a graphical user interface within OpenWindows or CDE through which a user can monitor printers and monitor and cancel print jobs.
