I'm using a standalone Lantronix print server that supports several
protocols: IPX, appletalk, tcp/ip and whatever DEC uses, I can't recall.
With each protocol it has has its own network number

I use lpr with the tcp protocol and a printcap that specifies

eps_prt|Dept laser printer NAME:\
        :rg=mygroup:\  # prevents unauthorized access
        :rp=NAME_:\    # NAME_ must be in /etc/hosts with ip number

To print a file, I say:

	lpr -PNAME_ file_name

You will need to do some reading in your manual for your printserver,
and some of the HOWTO documents.  I can't help with other protocols.
