I started lpd on this machine: (with the -4 flag, see above).

This is the printcap from this machine:

lp|local line printer:\

Note that "neutron" has:
alex@oink ~ $ ping6 neutron
PING6(56=40+8+8 bytes) fe80::250:baff:fed4:a512%rl0 --> fe80:1::250:4ff:fe0f:5a27
16 bytes from fe80::250:4ff:fe0f:5a27%rl0, icmp_seq=0 hlim=64 time=2.492 ms

(telnet6 works!)

Then I just start lpd (or lpd -4, same effect), and this happens.
when I do rm= in the printcap, I get:
root@oink ~ $ lpq Warning: no daemon present

lpd: Host name for your address ( unknown

So, this MIGHT be the reason:  The IPv4 address is nonexistent,
but it displays the IPv6 address as error address.
However, it's still bad that he uses and IPv6 stuff when I specify -4

BTW, it works if I add a PTR for
