Description of problem:
The lpd daemon running on a 7.3 server can print no problem to its local printer
(HP laserjet 1100). Another 7.3 client on the same (private) subnet cannot print
nor list the queue. "No connect permission" is given when issuing lpq
-P<queue>@<remote hostname> or when trying to print a test page from printconf.
The remote print server has the client's hostname in /etc/hosts.lpd file. I have
tried all formats, dotted quad, hostname, FQDN but to no avail.
Firewall not an issue
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Print test page form printconf
2. lpq command from client
3. lpr command from client
Actual Results: No connect permission
Expected Results: Printer to print something...!
The client and server are both fairly new 7.3 installations (not upgrades).
Previous 7.2 versions worked fine. Windows clients on same subnet can print via
samba no problem.
Have considered cups instead, but would be nice to get lpd working first.

Use /etc/lpd.perms for setting access controls for LPRng: man lpd.perms
I don't *think* that LPRng uses /etc/hosts.lpd any more, although I thought
that it could be made to.
