I am having a problem similar
to the one Robert Maynord had a while back about setting up a classroom print
server. Since this is a specialty request, if anyone can help please reply to me
directly at firstname.lastname@example.org rather than
cluttering up seul-edu.
I am using a 486-66 as a
print server for an HP Laserjet 4. It runs programs and prints directly to the
printer just fine. However, when I try to print to the server from other
machines on the network nothing happens.
Linuxconf says that lpd is
running. Following Robert's email thread, I tried "telnet teacher 515"
(teacher is the server) from another machine and got
"malformed from address"
"connection closed by
I then ran lpq on the server and got no entries. When I ran
"lpc status lp" on teacher I got the messages
queuing is enabled
printing is enabled
no daemon is present."
When I ran the same thing on a client I got
"remote: waiting for queue to be enabled on
I then tried
"ps ax | grep lpd" on the server and got the
"472 ? S 0:08 lpd".
I am using static IP addresses, and they all exist on the
server in both hosts and hosts.lpd.
Any suggestions on how to
make the remotes print?
