I'm testing to see if I can print from a client to a print server.
I set up a dt terminal as printer. On the server itself I can print
without any problem. Now if I print it from a client nothing appears
on the server. With snoop I notice some exchange of packets between
client and server by PRINTER on port 1023 but no files get created in
/var/spool/lp/tmp/hostname_of_the_client directory. And of course I dont
see any output on the server screen. I get the following output on the
# lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: printer_name
system for test1: printserver_hostname
test1 accepting requests since Mar 13 15:42 2001
printer printer_name unknown state. enabled since Mar 13 15:42 2001.
test1-20 mail!root 605 Mar 13 15:42
test1-23 mail!root 605 Mar 13 15:42
test1-24 mail!root 605 Mar 13 15:42
test1-25 mail!root 605 Mar 13 15:42
test1-26 mail!root 605 Mar 13 15:42
I would appreciate verymuch if anyone can shed some light on it.
BTW, the client is running Solaris 7 and the Server is running Solaris 8
thanks in advance,
