Description of problem:
According to the SAP, you should add remote hosts that you wish to have printing
privileges to /etc/hosts.lpd. But this does not work. It can be made to work by
adding the line
ACCEPT SERVICE=X REMOTEHOST=</etc/hosts.lpd
to /etc/lpd.perms, before the line
REJECT SERVICE=X NOT SERVER
The documentation should be changed to note this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try adding hostname or IP to /etc/hosts.lpd.
2. Try printing from that host. It doesn't work.
3. Add the line referred to above to /etc/lpd.perms, and restart lpd.
4. You can now print from the remote host.
Good catch. It has been fixed in the manual's sources, and the version on our
website has been updated.
