Stop Printer Messages Logging to TTY


I have a Debian/Woody server that is a file/print server.

It logs messages like "LP1 out of paper" and "Lp1 offline" to the TTY.

How can I stop it fro doing this.

I'd much prefer it if it logged it to syslog or something like that.

I checked /etc/syslog.conf and it has this line:

lpr.* -/var/log/lpr.log

Maybe you should look elsewhere. Does this log it onto a specific TTY? i don't think syslog is logging it to TTY, because then you would have an entry of it in syslog.conf. I could, of course, be wrong.
