Solaris 8 setup remote printer queue help

I am trying to setup a remote printer (home users printer) through Solaris 8. The IP address is 172.16.17.10 and I can ping the printer, a local windows printer queue has been setup and works but now I am trying to setup a remote Unix printer queue.

With this being a remote printer, do I need to use the lpadmin command line to setup the printer?

For example: lpadmin -p<home printer queue name> -s<local server name>

If this isn't the command, what is the correct command line to use?

thanks
Mark
