	I'm sure someone has asked this before, but I can't seem to find any 
	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.


You will also nee the Symbolics LGP software (the font metrics).
