Installing network printer

What is the command for setting up a network printer in SCO 5.0.5?

You can use "scoadmin" in the gui or in a text login, or "mkdev lp".

If you are adding a HP port 9100 printer, use "scoadmin" and choose the HP Printer config, or use it directly from /usr/lib/hpnp/hpnpcfg

However, most of us think that HP stuff is overkill and troublesome and use a third party tool; see Where do I get "netcat" and how do I use it?

Of course at this point in time, wouldn't it be better to be moving away from SCO anyway?
