The easiest way would be using the GUI-based Admintool which has a Printer Manager that is supposed to be able to do all this and more.
Hmmm, the lp system is totally different than what you're used to. The System V Line Printer System is a lot more, well, flexible. A cynic might say "complicated". Here's a very quick guide -- see the man pages for each of these commands for the details.
Let's say your Solaris2 workstation is called "sol" and the 4.1.x server is called "bertha" and you want the printer name to be "printer" (imaginative, eh?).
sol# lpsystem -t bsd bertha # says bertha is a bsd system sol# lpadmin -p printer -s bertha -T unknown -I any # creates "printer" on "sol" # to be printed on "bertha" sol# accept printer # allow queuing sol# enable printer # allow printing sol# lpstat -t # check the status
Finally, if that's your only printer, make it the default:
sol# lpadmin -d printer
On some systems you may have to turn on the port monitor.
