    Default remote printing between sco server, server won't come up!

    We've got a couple of SCO 5.0.6 servers and on some of then are serial
    printers connected. We won't to share these using lpd.

    i've installed it like it should be done according by SCO!
    but when i put a printjob in the queue it stays there, and it wont't get
    printed

    this is what i get.
    # rlpstat remote_printer
    local.servername: waiting for remote.servername to come up
    req-id ...

    the printers are all accepting and enabled.

    I've got the feeling it is something stupid are just a deamon that aint
    running!

    could you advise me how to get it printing?

    thanks
    Marco

    I do not believe it matters if they are serial - parallel or network print
    servers.
     

    Perhaps you should detail what you have done. Using scoadmin printer
    manager, I have allowed remote connections and then gone to the other box
    and set them up.

    "print1:lp=:rm=:rp=sername:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/print1:">>/etc/printcap 

    On the stuff you pasted in, the client side was missing the 'rm' value, the
    'remote machine'. 'rp' should also be set to the remote queue name
    ('print1').

    The local printer name doesn't *have* to be the same, but it makes it
    easier.
