SUMMARY: Help with printing on Solaris 7 server

From: Fred Vegliante (
Date: Sat Feb 13 1999 - 07:42:29 CST

Solaris 2.6/7 print servers use the daemon /usr/lib/print/in.lpd to
allow print clients to print through it. The following line must appear
in the /etc/inetd.conf file

printer stream tcp nowait root /usr/lib/print/in.lpd in.lpd

The inetd.conf file on the print server had been overwritten by a
Solaris2.5.1 inetd.conf file. Very bad.

A great deal of thanks go to the following list members that took the
time to assist me:

Thank You.
