Well that depends/ You seem to be saying that you have a print server
that is actually doing the printing. You want to set up a machine so
it will print to the hplj4000 through this server. Our experience is
that one way is to choose UNIX-LPD printing. Make the queue name the
name of the queue on the server. As to driver don't choose the
specific printer but use the Postscript option on the Generic printer
list.
