LPR Printing to NT-based Printer?

» close window

The Question is:

I have seen the post for printing with DCPS to an Hp printer using a "jet"
I have a NT workstation with a printer port (ab1-128-hp-lj3) and I would like
 to set it up to print from a Alpha (7.2-1)  using DCPS (1.7).  I'm not sure
 what port to put to print to

The Answer is :

  Please contact your Microsoft technical support organization for
  assistance in locating and configuring software to allow Windows NT
  to act as an LPD server -- there have been various discussions of
  configuring OpenVMS LPR and LPD, and these permit access to various
  remote LPD packages in printers and remote host systems.  (The OpenVMS
  Wizard would at least initially avoid adding this additional and
  unnecesary level of complexity to the IP configuration, and would
  use LPR/LPD directly from OpenVMS to the printer NIC.)
