I will be moving to Solaris 11.2 once new sparc hardware arrives. 
Current equipment is all Solaris 10.

I have used HP's print software package HPNPL (filename SOLe134.PKG) for 
years because its net_lj4x model script works for all of our installed 
HP printers and meets our needs fine.  I'm am curious if any of you have 
either continued/attempted to use this old software or switched to use 
something else.  We personally do not require any extended printer 
features and the ease of administration has been nice.
