Setup HP Network Printing for non HP Printers on SCO Unix OpenServer and UnixWare Servers

Problem: How do I setup HP print services on a non HP print server on SCO Unix Servers?

Cause: The HP Print daemon is expecting a response from the HP Printer when queried that non HP printers do not respond with.


In OpenServer backup the /etc/getone file.

# cp /etc/getone /etc/

In Unixware the file is in /usr/sbin.

Null out /etc/getone

# > /etc/getone

Edit /etc/getone with the following

echo “Name: HP.
Value: 0

Then to allow access for all users change permissions on the /etc/getone

# chmod 755 /etc/getone
