We made a new script for remote printers. In this script you can route
each different class of printer to different remote machines. uux is used
to execute the remote print job.
Make a new device with lpadmin of the type of remote printer , writing to
Assign for each class [ if used ] the class to the remote printer ( script ).
This gives no security problems. The only thing to do is specify lp as
allowed job in the Permissions file of the remote machine.
that writes to /dev/null and
