Recently had to setup a new SCO Unix System 5 computer and we installed a network printer.
It prints perfectly if I am logged in as root, but any other user is unable to print. I hunted all over for some kind of access file or permissions that would block other users but I can find none. Can someone point me to a place to check?
From a command prompt, I type a simple lp command, it looks like it worked but nothing prints. Same exact file and command logged in as root and it works just fine.
$ l f1011*
-rw-r--r-- 1 filepro group 11811 Oct 11 17:10 f1011.txt
$ lp f1011.txt
request id is T634-100 (1 file)
Printer stats look like this:
scheduler is running
system default destination: T634
device for T634: /dev/null
T634 accepting requests since Fri Jul 19 14:37:05 2013
printer T634 is idle. enabled since Fri Jul 19 14:37:05 2013. available.
I checked /dev/null and I am sure anyone would be able to access that. Since this is a network printer, I am not sure where it actually goes to get to the printer. Obviously an IP Address, but I don't know where to check for that device.
Be glad to add any information necessary that I have overlooked. The printer has all users listed on the Allowed side in scoadmin.
Any help would be appreciated. The tech that setup my system, seems unable to resolve this issue. You pay someone that should know this stuff and it turns out they leave you hanging.
