TCP/IP Printservers under AIX5?

Well now that our old system is gone, and we no longer can use the multiport serial port stuff, I need a new way to connect our printers...

I was thinking it should be possible to setup TCP/IP print servers on each printer and bind them to the new AIX5 box. I'm sure there must be a way and that it is supported... At least I hope so, this is a current version of AIX.

Anyways... does anyone have any experience with this? Or has done this before? I have looked around in SMIT --> printer and haven't really found anything that looks like i "should" use it to connect to the print servers.

No one ever setup TCP/IP printing before?? How is this possible?!

I have tried to sounds some info from IBM's sites, about the lpd service and whatnot... but it all doesn't make much sense, and i can't seem to get it to work.

It's so simple that I did not really think you could have a problem.
Smitty printer
It works almost evrery time without problem
I am far away from my system, so I say it by heart, but I should not be so wront
smit printer
add a print queue
remote printer

HP JetDirect
give the network name of the printer and the printer print queue name, and that's all.
