U follow these steps
First make sure that U are able to ping to the printer.. This just to confirm that Ur network connectivity is ok or not .. then
open sam and follow this
sam->printers and plotters->lp spooler->Printes and plotters->action->add printer
Here select network printer and give the rqd parameters care fully. Once U have done, come out of sam and do this
Make sure that ur printer scheduler is running and printer is enable and accepting the request. If not ok
Check up printout is coming or not
Best of luck

Try hp jetdirect to add a network printer,
Download it from the link and install the same. There is a readme which will help you.
Or you can download the older version, called jetadmin like this,
username : anonymous
password : your_email_address
get HP11d621.SD (for hp 11.x)
Hope this helps.

1. When you do a lpshut it stops the scheduler so that there cant be any lp process running , hence the output.
2.why it cant find the memeber is there no file defined in /usr/spool/lp/memeber witht that name . the absic command to add a printer is lapdmin -p
Do use the coomand w/o the other options and may be use jet admin to add a network printer

The command "/usr/sam/lbin/lpmgr" was successful with the following
exception: lpstat: "lipi" not a request id or a destination lpstat: no entries lpstat: can't open output queue file
A potential problem occurred doing "accept lipi". Stderr from this
command is "/usr/sbin/accept: destination "lipi" non-existent".
A potential problem occurred doing "enable lipi". Stderr from this
command is "/usr/bin/enable: printer "lipi" non-existent".
pl suggest me what to do

what is the o/p of lpstat -t , i believe that there some problem , why dont you just recreate a printer wiht another name then lipi , or delete the current one
and then recreate it .
I would still prefer that you use jetadmin and that is not so sticky.
