Description of problem:
lpq/rpr supports an option for using a remote printer/lpd queue
I use this feature to print to a remote printer using an ssh forwarded port.
This feature does not work with the LPRng packages shipped with RH8.0 - but
works with the LPRng-3.8.19-3.1 (as shipped with RH-9 - after 'rpmbuild
--rebuild' on RH-8.0)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure LPRng is installed
2. forward a remote printer port using ssh
ssh remotemachine -L10515:printservermachine:515
Here the print server is a different machine than login machine
3. /usr/bin/lpq.LPRng -Plw3@localhost%10515
Actual Results: [balay@dreamcast balay]$ /usr/bin/lpq.LPRng -Plw3@localhost%10515
Printer 'lw3@localhost' - cannot open connection - No such file or directory
Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol
and accepts connections from this host and from non-privileged (>1023) ports
Expected Results: [balay@dreamcast balay]$ /usr/bin/lpq.LPRng
Printer: lw3@gutenberg 'lw3_local'
Queue: no printable jobs in queue
Status: lw3 printed STDIN for mcdowell mcdowell on ....
