I am working as a system administrator, i got challenging work from my team leader i.e., configuring network printer in redhat 4.2/centos 5.
Initially i started with redhat linux 4.2. Unfortunately i didn't get any default man pages. I downloaded the rpm package mit-lprng.3.8.27-10-rhe4.i386.rpm and ran it. I got man pages of lpd but i couldn't able to start lpd services. then i downloaded the lpd daemon startup script from this site : http://www.comptechdoc.org/os/linux/...nux_sulpd.html
. Now i could able start lpd services.
In server system i have configured the printer locally (shared and used LPD protocol).
In client system i am unable to take test page even though it is connected to desired print server.
Even some times it shows "remote host cannot accept control file(data file) 32
Please friends kindly help to diagnose this problem, as it is a challenge for me...
