Description Gerry Tool 2005-03-16 22:37:54 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2

Description of problem:
Using the command line system-config-printer, I set up my LPD print server networked Samsung Laser ML-1750 printer.  All looked fine until I tried a test page print.  No printout, and the error message "Unable to reserve port. Permission denied" appeared in the printer status line.

The port used was server name =, printer name L2

This same setup works in FC3 and a number of other distributions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
run system-config-printer 1.
set up LPD server networked printer 2.
print a test page 3.

Actual Results:  No printout.  Printer status says "Unable to reserve port. Permission denied."

Expected Results:  Test page should have printed.

Does this happen if you try again now? (It might be different if you have
rebooted since this report.)

If it still happens, please show me the output of 'netstat -tlp' as root.

Still happens.  Your message prompted me to remember the firewall problem with
FC3, so I checked with/without the firewall enabled - same result.
Here is the result:
[root@gstpc ~]# netstat -tlp
