Help: PLP/LPRNG "refused insecure request"

Post by Juergen Scheidere » Sat, 11 Oct 1997 04:00:00



Hello,

my lpd (PLP/LPRNG) does not accept printjobs from another host
on the net. It produces the following message in syslog.

"refused insecure request from host FOOBAR"

"/etc/printer_perms" looks like this:

# Printer permissions data base
# ! - if a match is made, permission denied
# ~ - a match must be made, otherwise permission denied
#
#examples:
#host   user      group  printer     perms  pr maxpages pages
#HOST   USER      *      test        C      A  100      0  # for testing
#HOST   USER      *      simple      C      A  100      0  # for testing
#HOST   USER      *      remote      C      A  100      0  # for testing
#*      *         *      simple      R      *  0        0  #anybody can
do test
#*      *         *      test        R      *  0        0  #anybody can
do test
#
#real entry:
#host   user      group  printer     perms  pr maxpages pages
*       root      *      *           *      *  0        0  #root on any
system
*       *         *      *           C      A  0        0  #normal user
*       *         *      *           R      X  0        0  #default

Please help,
