how to Configure Network printer using LPD/LPR protocol?


Hi,
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...

Are you using CUPS to manage your printer or just the LPD daemon? Also which brand/type printer are we talking about?

Are the clients also centos 5 / RH ? or are these windows clients?

hi

Actually i am using rhel 4 and centos 5. printer is hp laserjet P2015 model. First of all i thought of implementing lpd to my print server where exactly the printer has been connected and make other systems as its client, but i didn't get any default service lpd, like cups.
