I am migrating an old server with lp printers to a new server with CUPS.
On old server, the /etc/printcap file specified various aliases that could be used for the same printer. For example:
# first printer
# second printer
# third printer....
Those aliases are used heavily by various production scripts and commands such as 'enscript' and 'lp'.
On the new server I have confirmed that enscript and lp are able to use a CUPS printer by name such as HP8150DN.
# enscript -dHP8150DN test.txt
Does CUPS have a way to alias multiple printer names onto the same printer?
