Hi there,

Use 'lpstat' to display information about your printers, e.g. lpstat -v

Each printer name should have a corresponding entry in your /etc/hosts file.

Something like this should help:

for i in `/usr/bin/lpstat -v | awk '{print $1}' `; do
    getent hosts $i
done

I can't check it now but let me know how you get on.

Regards, Nisus

If you want to see what IP (or hostname) is associated with a printer you can look at /etc/lp/printers/spool-name/configuration. For example:

asgard> cat /etc/lp/printers/hq-x-110/configuration
Banner: optional
Content types: postscript
Device: /dev/null
Interface: /usr/lib/lp/model/netstandard
Printer type: PS
Modules:
Options: dest=hq-x-110.domain.tld:lp0,protocol=bsd

tells me that the printer hq-x-110 is using a printer with a hostname of hq-x-110.domain.tld

if it is not in the /etc/hosts file it could be in DNS or NIS.

run this:

getent hosts | grep hq-x-110

or

ypmatch hosts | grep hq-x-110

Are you the mail server's administrator?
