Hello QNX World,
Not too long ago I had network printing working (although in a crude
form) on my 6.0 and, later, 6.1 box. Now it does not work and the
symptom is that lpd will not run.
The previously successful configuration included:
- Network printer (Canon) running lpd internally w/static IP address.
- inetd running on QNX6.1
- /etc/printcap file exists with lpt1 entry for Canon
- Required files in /usr/spool exist
- The file /etc/hosts.equiv exists
I can do “pidin | grep inetd” and see that process.
I can do "lpd " and nothing.
I can do “lpd &” and get a pid response BUT when
followed by a “pidin | grep lpd” the response is
Honestly, printing used to work a number of weeks ago. I’m wondering
if the last successful printing was prior to the patch A upgrade??
