I've got a problem mentioned in the FAQ and HOW-TO but those
sources don't give much information to the solution.
Here's the deal:
Before I connected my 486 to my 386 via TCP/IP my printer
daemon worked and I could print fine. After I enabled the networking
stuff the daemon never wakes. I.e. lpc reports "no daemon present" or
"no daemon to abort." I try starting the daemon manually but that
doesn't do much of anything.
So, I read through the FAQ and the printing HOW-TO and it _does_
mention this problem. However there isn't much of a solution -- the
printing HOW-TO states this occures when TCP/IP is incorrectly configured,
but doesn't elaborate.
The rest of UN*X networking facilities work great otherwise!
I can telnet back and forth, send mail, use ftp, mount a nfs, redirect
the output from one X server to another, play xtank and MudOS, etc...
So I decided to turn to the Linux community to help me with
fixing this delimna.
I am running _old_ software. It is an SLS distribution from
about a year ago. Somewhere around .99pl12 and software subsystems
current around mid '93. If anyone knows that this behavior has been
eliminated in 1.0 kernels and facilities please let me know and sorry
for wasting time because of outdated softs.
If it is a TCP/IP configuration problem and someone knows what
configuration errors cause this phenomenon, again please let me know.
Thanks for your attention!
