i'm running redhat 8 and i just compiled cups/hplip for my system and my HP Deskjet 3745 printer.
The services seem to work fine but lpr doesn't work:
sending job 'root@hermes+313' to HP3745@localhost
connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
cannot open connection to localhost
Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol
I know my linux system needs an update
but is there anyway to get lpr working? Do i really need to update my linux kernel to 2.4.19?
Thanx for any help.
