A ``local printer'' is a printer attached directly to your system.
After physically connecting your printer to your system
Chapter 23, ``Adding printers'' in the SCO OpenServer Handbook),
you must add the printer to the list of those
that the print service recognizes.
Select Add Local from the Printer menu.
You can do this remotely using the Open Host selection of
the Host menu. This requires user equivalence on the machine
you plan to administer, as described in
``Adding user equivalence'' in the Networking Guide.
As on the local machine, non-root
accounts require the lp authorization to run the
Printer Manager. See
``Assigning subsystem authorizations''
for more information.
To add a new local printer that is similar to an existing local printer,
simply copy the configuration from the existing printer and make
small changes, instead of starting from scratch.
``Duplicating a local printer''.
Enter a unique name for the new printer.
Enter a description of the printer (optional).
Use the ``Description'' field to identify the printer's location,
brand name, or the group to which the printer belongs.
Select the printer model name that most closely matches your printer
from the ``Model'' list.
If the default device listed is incorrect,
select the device to which the printer is connected
from the ``Device'' list.
If it does not appear in the list, enter the correct device
in the ``Device'' field.
