  • The installation process needs HPPI installed on the system.
  • The “uncompress” utility is required to get through the installation.
  • “root” permission is required in order to proceed with installation.


Once the SHAR bundle is obtained, the following steps need to be done for installation:

  1. Place the SHAR bundle into any directory, e.g. : “/opt/hpnpl/tmp”
  2. Change the directories to the same path as the file
    $ cd /opt/hpnpl/tmp/<modelscript_filename.sh.Z>
  3. Uncompress the bundle using:
    $ uncompress <modelscript_filename.sh.Z>
  4. Change the permissions of <modelscript_filename.sh.Z> so that the script is executable using:
    $chmod 755 <modelscript_filename.sh>
  5. Run the script by using the following syntax:
    $ sh <modelscript_filename.sh.Z>
  6. On success of the above command, the following files will be created & placed in the required locations as mentioned below:
    • The configuration file will reside in /opt/hpnpl/admin/printers/
    • <modelscript_filename> will reside in:
      • On HP-UX – /opt/hpnpl/sh/
      • On Solaris – /etc/lp/model/hpnpl/
    • <modelscript_filename>.1 the MAN page will reside in /opt/hpnpl/man/man1/
  7. The configuration file should be run using:
    $../opt/hpnpl/admin/printers/<configuration_file> ‘ for default options
    $../opt/hpnpl/admin/printers/<configuration_file> <option> ‘ to set the options
    where <option> can be any of the following:

    • ask_xlang
    • modifymenu
    • showmenu
    • modifysettings
  8. On success of the configuration setting the user is ready to use the script. The format for usage is as follows:
    HP_UX:$<modelscript_filename> <userid> <username> <title> <no_copies> <optionlist> <file> > <targetfile>
    $hpnpf -x <ipaddress> <targetfile>Example:
    $net_cljCM6030MFP 1 lp test 1 “tray1 A4” testfile > test.prn
    $hpnpf -x <ipaddress> test.prnSUN SOLARIS:

    $net_cljCM6030MFP <userid> <username> <title> <no_copies> <optionlist> <file> > <targetfile>
    $lp -d <printer name> <target file>

    $net_cljCM6030MFP 1 lp test 1 “tray1 A4” testfile > test.prn
