The answer is:

      Solaris printing no longer uses these services.Solaris 2.6 uses in.lpd
(run from inetd) to handle that

Original question:

I was trying to register the network BSD listen service to a Solaris 2.6 but I
received the following

nlsadmin: warning: /var/spool/lp/fifos/listenBSD does not exist

I used to install that service on Solaris 2.5.1, Does it exist on Solaris 2.6 ?
What is the SUN package that contain that service ?

Any ideas will be appreciated, thanks in advance,
