Re: printing to a unix box
How can I print from a symbolics to a unix box (e.g. sun)? I assume
that I need some sort of service on the symbolics to talk to the lpd
server on the unix box.
You don't need a service on the Symbolics, you need a protocol. In
Genera 8.0, load the "RPC", "Embedding-Support", and "UX-Support"
systems and you'll get the UNIX-LPD protocol defined.
Thats correct, of course, but there is much simpler way to load the
unix-lpd software. Unix-lpd really has nothing to do with RPC, nothing
to do with Embedding-Support, and nothing to do with UX-Support. Just
load it (the file sys;embedding;ux;unix-lpd) on top of IP-TCP.
This also applies to the unix-rsh and unix-tape software which can
be found in the same directory. (Famous last words: I have compiled and
loaded unix-lpd in the manner described, but I haven't actually used it.)
