I am hopping that someone might give me a clue as to why I can't share my printer.
I am using RedHat and I have configured my printer to work fine on it (using
the Red Hat printer config utility). Now I have brought up another machine
with Red Hat linux and I wish to share my printer with it. After entering the
relevant information on the second machine (server02) to print to my machine I get the
following message on the sever02 when I enter lpq:
server01.crom.edu.au: lpd: lp: Your host does not have line printer access
I have placed in the hosts, hosts.lpd, hosts.equiv and hosts.allow files on
my machine the following info:
22.214.171.124 server02.crom.edu.au server02
Using the Printer_Cfg tool on the second machine (server02)
I entered the following:
(I clicked on the Add button)
(Then clicked on the 'Remote Unix (lpd) Queue' radio button, then clicked ok)
Names (name1|name2|...) already had 'lp' in it.
Spool Directory already had '/var/spool/lpd/lp' in it.
File Limit in Kb(0 = no limit) had '0' in it.
I enter in the Remote Host: server02.crom.edu.au
I enter in the Remote Queue: /var/spool/lpd/lp1
Both machine are aware of the other, ping works.
And lpd is running on both.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
