Solaris Naming Administration Guide

FNS Printer Naming

FNS-based printer naming provides the basic naming support for the unbundled Sun Microsystems Print Client (SSPC). FNS-based printer naming enables printers to be named relative to users, hosts, sites, and organizations, using the FNS policies shared with other non-printing-related applications.

FNS-based printer naming gives clients a common view of the global and enterprise-wide printer namespaces and allows centralized administration of the printer namespaces.
