Dear Ray and Seul Folks:
Thanks for your questions and insights! I have responses below.........

Yes, this is a typo -- it is lp0

I assume that I am running lpd direct. I read that lpd is not normally run
from inetd. However, I have not done anything to set it up to start
automatically. I assumed that it would start when sent a print job. If I
need to use inetd, it is a bit different in Red Hat than other distros, I
think. It runs throught the rc stuff (I think). Red Hat has a command to
open a "check box" selector screen for inetd, although I forget the
command. It is not in the manual.
When I run "telnet linux-36 515" from the workstation, I get
connected to Linux-36.
escape character is '^]'.
lpd:lp1: malformed from address.
connection closed by foreign host.
This looks like a good clue!!!
In the Red Hat graphical printing queue on the workstation there are two
lines for my test print jobs waiting, but there is also the following:
RANK -- lpd:
OWNER -- lp1:
JOB -- 0
FILES -- name for your address
SIZE -- (192.168.0.10)
I noticed the lpd: and lp1: here....?

Yes, the directory exists. Ownership is root. Permissions did not include
"Write Entries". However, I have now checked them all -- just to be sure.
When I run the "lpq" command on Linux-36, it gives me the message "no
I also tried the command "lpc status lp" on Linux-36 and received the
queuing is enabled
printing is enabled
no daemon is present
This looks like an interesting clue!
I sure appreciate your help on this!!!
