printer help


So I have been tasked with taking over the new RHEL 5.6 server our company installed. Currently we have a network printer, for general purposes let's say it's called printer1 with ip address of 1.2.3.4.

I want to add this printer to the RHEL server, do I simply run:

lpadmin -p printer1 1.2.3.4

I am completely new to linux, so any help is appreciated.

I don't have access to a gui (our X sessions get blocked by security/firewall).
