Remote Printing under RH 8.0
Posted on 2003-03-22
I have a locally connected printer on a RedHat 8.0 system that I would like to share with some other machines on the same LAN. I used the RedHat printer configuration utility to set this up, and it works fine locally. However, other machines on the LAN can't seem to print to it. On the machine that has the printer locally connected (192.168.0.125), I have set up hosts.lpd and lpd.perms as specified in the RH documentation (or at least I think I have...), but still the machine refuses to let anyone print to it. I suspect I am missing something simple, but can't figure it out.
Here are the appropriate files (comment lines omitted):
ACCEPT SERVICE=X REMOTEHOST=</etc/hosts.lpd
What am I doing wrong, or what have I not done?
