CHANGING A PRINT QUEUE IP



To change the IP address of
a print queue in HP UX 10.20
(and maybe others), go to
/var/spool/lp/interface.
Edit the file with the same
name as the print queue and
change parameter PERIPH to
the new IP address.

For example, to change
printer_1 from 127.0.0.2 to
127.0.10.10, edit
/var/spool/lp/interface/printer_1
and change the line PERIPH=127.0.0.2 to
PERIPH=127.0.10.10.

Disable and enable printer_1,
and jobs sent to printer_1 will
go to the new IP address.
