Boss want some printer on server using UNIX


Hello,
I am new to a company. My boss wants me to solve a problem with installing a printer on a UNIX server. He has not done it in ten years. He wants me to help him. I am looking for guidance from you guys. The print device is controlled by in house programmer that use UNIX. Seems that Linus gurus would slam this problem. We have tons of experience just maybe the boss needs a little guidance and I can be the hero.
I am a real newbe.
Take care ,
Albert

It is going to depend on what system (Solaris, IRIX, AIX ???), what printer (make/model/features...) type of connection (parallel, network, USB ...).

Linux isn't UNIX. It is similar, but it isn't the same, and doesn't work the same.

Hello,
Yes Linux not eq. UNIX thanks. The type of UNIX is AXI, by Rocket, with an other identifier called UniVerse(brand).
Anyway it is UNIX , AXI. Then, the progammers come out with typical message to the bridge. The bridge will take the address of the print device bridge it to the server. So it being Serial , Parallel is not a great issue.
Take care,
Albert
PS lets focus on the problem....make some intelligent assumptions.

Somebody else will have to help. I can't even find an AXI UNIX. AIX yes - but that is by IBM. And the other things are also unfamilar (bridge? what kind?, what printer? Is it really a serial line - a most unlikely situation as that has severe performance penalties? What host? Some don't even HAVE a serial line, some that do, have them in use for other purposes (power management for instance).
