Printing from HP-UX 10.2 to a Lexmark e450dn through a Debian etch print server

I got this problem and need all the help i can get.

I got this Lexmark E450dn printer, i need to print to it from an HP-UX application.
Problem is i have HP-UX 10.2 installed on my server and there are no 10.2 drivers from Lexmark for this printer.....only HP-UX 11.0 and later is supported.

so i thought of setting up a linux print server, add the Lexmark to it, then share it across the network so i can add it as a remote printer in HP-UX 10.2 and be able to print to it.

I've already got Debian etch installed on a box, got the printer installed and printing fine, got CUPS server running and printing test pages to the lexmark fine.

My problem now is :

How do i get the HP-UX server to print to the lexmark now ??
how to configure CUPS on it ?

10.20 is ancient in HP-UX terms.

Default tool for printing in HP-UX is JetAdmin (later rebranded as HPNP). This didn't use "drivers" so much as "models". If you got a "model" for HP-UX 11.x chances are you can make it available in your HP-UX 10.20 system.

I haven't really done any HP-UX to Linux printing mainly because I'm using JetAdmin/HPNP on all but one environment which IS running 10.20 but there we use CEPS rather than CUPS.

Not a lot of support here for HP-UX. You might want to post on or on the Dutchworks mailing list.

I'm not an expert, but are you trying to configure your printer on HP-UX with the standard SystemV print subsystem? If so, you should be able to either create a remote queue with SAM or I believe that you should be able to use an HP-UX 10.2 package for an older Lexmark mono product, using MVPrint(aka lexprt). Here's a link to a relevant product.

Since HP-UX 10.2 does not include CUPS, I would need to know more about your configuration and expectations in order to give you an adequate response there.
