I'm having problems printing over my network. I have three Linux machines, weaver, ripley, jonesy. weaver has a printer. I configured the printer with printtool on all three machines. I can print fine from weaver, but from ripley and jonesy, when I try to print, I get the error:
lpr: connect: Connection refused
jobs queued, but cannot start daemon.
And then when I do lpq on the remote machines, I see the print jobs in the queue, but also this error:
weaver: lpd: lp: Your host does not have line printer access
weaver is the machine with the printer. I can print fine from weaver. All network connections, like telnet, ftp, nfs, are fine between all three machines. Is there some special permission that I need to give for /dev/lp0? I've tried both 660 and 666 for weaver's lp0. I get the same error for both trying to remote print. What else can I check? Thanks,
