You can use Admintool to enable your system to access a printer that is either attached to your system or available on your site's network. You can connect the printer to the system and turn the power on before or after using the Admintool to enable access to that printer. Connecting a printer to your system generally involves the following steps:
Physically connecting the printer to the system
Setting any required switches and configuring the baud rate, port, and other settings on the printer, if necessary. (See the printer vendor's manual and your system's hardware installation manual for information about switch settings and cabling requirements.) You usually connect printer cables to a serial port, but in some cases, depending on the requirements of the printer involved, you can use a parallel port.
Plugging the printer into a power outlet.
Logging in to the system and become root.
Starting Admintool and select Printers from Browse menu to update local system files necessary to use the printer.
