Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-12-23 12:25:08 UTC
Did you put 'ab' on a line on its own?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2003-01-06 14:11:01 UTC
Yes - it was on it's own line - see below
You can call me at 202-502-2739 if you need more info.


# lpd.conf
# VERSION=3.7.4
# lpd.conf generated from  on Thu May 16 07:55:09 EDT 2002
#   The values in this file are the default values.
#   If you modify the file,  set the value to something other 
than the default
#   For example,
#     # default force_localhost
#   means the 'force_localhost' option default value is on or 1
#   To set it to OFF or 0, change this to read:
#     force_localhost@

# Purpose: always print banner, ignore lpr -h option
   default ab@ (FLAG off

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2003-01-06 14:35:22 UTC
The line need to be *exactly*:

ab

with nothing else on it at all.  No 'default', and definitely not '@' (which
inverts its meaning..).


Comment 4 Need Real Name 2003-01-06 19:06:34 UTC
I still got no banner with the following. Does the computer need 
to be rebooted after the change or will the change take place 
immediately?
------------------------------
[root@woodstock etc]# head -20 lpd.conf
# lpd.conf

#   The values in this file are the default values.
#   If you modify the file,  set the value to something other 
than the default
#   For example,
#     # default force_localhost
#   means the 'force_localhost' option default value is on or 1
#   To set it to OFF or 0, change this to read:
#     force_localhost@

# Purpose: always print banner, ignore lpr -h option
ab
# Purpose: query accounting server when connected
#   default achk@ (FLAG off)
# Purpose: accounting at end (see also af, la, ar, as)
#   default ae=jobend $H $n $P $k $b $t  (STRING)
# Purpose: name of accounting file (see also la, ar)
#   default af=acct  (STRING)
# Purpose: automatically hold all jobs

Note: I also tried the follwing without any luck.

[root@woodstock etc]# service lpd restart
Stopping lpd:                                              [  OK 
 ]
Starting lpd:                                              [  OK 
 ]
[root@woodstock etc]#

"service lpd restart" ought to have been enough.

Did you ever get banner pages printing?

Remove me from this bug. We have migrated to RH 3.0.
