SuSE 6.2 remote printer administration

SuSE 6.2 remote printer administration

Post by David Steube » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



When I upgraded to SuSE 6.2 a while back, I lost the ability to print
over the network.  I would like that back as it is a real pain to
print to a file, copy the file to the computer with the printer on it,
and run lpr from there.  I figure the problem has to be with me not
puting in the correct entries in yast on the computer that needs to
print over the network.

I'm hoping that if I provide the /etc/printcaps file from the machine
with the printer, someone can hammer the correct answer into my head.

1. Remote root login in SuSE 6.2

Hi all,

I just installed SuSE 6.2 on an old Compaq.
I want to be able to login remotely as root , but the damn thing won't let
me.

SuSE tells me to set "Allow remote root login="yes"" in /etc/rc.config,
and to comment out a certain "Console tty1 tty2 blabla" line in
/etc/login.defs.
However , this line doesn't exist to begin with in login.defs (which should
be good, then) , and rc.config is already configured like that.

Funny thing is, i've installed 6.2 on another machine also , and it DOES
allows me to login as root remotely if i set the same options.

Anybody have any ideas where to start looking next ?

TIA
