Printing multiple problem issue


unable to stop hp 4000series (4250N) printer from printing multiple copies when a single print request is made using simple "lp" command from Solaris OS 2.8.

Any idea or solution are all welcome. Thank you.

CUPS very nice print spooler, you can manage your printers via WEB interface.

I'm using it on my Solaris and Linux.
