Nope, lpd = line printer daemon
Port of a linux daemon to handle all kinds of printers through one "driver".

Try the lpd.debug version and see what you get on amiga serial output (c:dumpdebugbuffer or Sashimi)?

I wondered if you could help a bit more with my setup please?

I have followed the instructions for OS4 setup. And I have also added cups-lpd to my linux print server.

However I can't get anything to print with the Hello World test in your documentation from the shell.

No errors etc popup on the Amiga - but I do get this output when I send something to print in the console of my linux print server when starting xinetd with the -d modifier:

21/6/12@12:19:29: DEBUG: 7056 {server_start} Starting service printer
21/6/12@12:19:29: DEBUG: 7056 {main_loop} active_services = 1

^C21/6/12@16:35:56: NOTICE: 7056 {general_handler} Unexpected signal 2 (Interrupt)

I already have cups running and working well for other computers as a network printer, I just really would like to also be able to send printouts over to my linux print server from the Amiga too if you can help me fix this?

This is the configuration I have used in /etc/xinetd.d/cups-lpd:

service printer
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = lp
server = /usr/lib/cups/daemon/cups-lpd
server_args = -o document-format=application/octet-stream -o job-sheets=none,none
disable = no

Thanks again for any help.

Thanks for the tool. However, could you please remove the hard-coded
print-to-PAR: setting. I have a USB printer so I need it to print to a device
with a different name (e.g., USBPRT:). Redirecting PAR: would be a messy

It’s not a tool; it’s a network service, so tour Amiga can
act as a “printer server” for Windows, Linux, Unix, Solaris,
MacOSX, what ever OS in your local network.

Thanks fore this tool.
one question though : is it to print things from the net ?
