Description David Woodhouse 2000-03-12 14:46:49 UTC
lpd is supposed to take a 'port#' argument on its command line which tells
it which INET port number on which to listen. However, it doesn't.

Patch and updated SRPM to fix this, and also add the special case '-1' to
mean "Don't listen to an INET socket at all", at
ftp.infradead.org:/pub/random/lp*

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-07-17 15:20:06 UTC
This is fixed in rawhide with the move to LPRng.
