I am using a script found on the script center. It doesn't give me enough
detail. I am looking to add a local standart tcp/ip port with custom
settings. It is LPR with a queue name of queue1. Is there a place to find
the additional lines of code to make the printer port setup this way. I am
runnning this to automate the printer setup.
