       lprsetup - printer spooler set up program


       The  command  provides an interactive easy-to-use facility for adminis‐
       trating the line printers on your system.  The program contains on-line
       help and default answers to questions about adding, deleting, or chang‐
       ing the characteristics of any of the line  printers  on	 your  system.
       Whenever	 a  question  is  asked, the default selection is given in ] .
       You can press Return in response to the question to accept the default,
       or enter an alternate value for the given parameter.

       The  program  knows about all of the possible symbols in the file.  See
       for a current list.  After you have entered  a  printer	specification,
       and  have verified that it is correct, then creates the spooling direc‐

       At this point, proceeds only if you have chosen a valid LAT device  for
       lp.  It assumes that the LAT device has been configured for host initi‐
       ated connections using If it has not, you must do this before the queue
       works.	For  information about how to set up a LAT line, see Chapter 3
       of the Guide to Ethernet Communications Servers.

       you are setting up a printer with a parallel port, for example, It does
       not prompt you for device type information, and	serial	port  specific
       entries are not put into the entry.
