I am trying to get lpd to print to a printer on another linux server.
I found in the man pages that I had to put the clients name into hosts.lpd on
the server. I did this and I still get a message saying that my host does
not have access to the printer. I also tried using an IP address but this didn't
I am running RedHat4.2 (kernel2.0.30) and my hosts.lpd looks like this
These are the IP addresses of the two machines that I want to have access to
I have looked through the source code of the lpd programme and found that these
files are parsed by the '__ivaliduser' or '_validuser' functioons. Does anyone
know what format this file is supposed to be in and if my file should work,
what else should I look for. I have found nothing to this effect in any man
or faq that I have found so far.
