OK, the ifconfig lo0 looks like this: ~ $ ifconfig lo0 lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384 inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000 The sockstat | grep :25 ~ $ sockstat | grep :25 root master 681 11 tcp4 *:25 *:* root ntpd 519 6 udp6 fe80:1::250:baff:fe43:3a7f:123*:* And finally: sockstat | grep :515 ~ $ sockstat | grep :515 daemon lpd 915 6 tcp4 *:515 *:* Finally, this is a quick list of what happens when I issue 'lpr' commands. You will notice that there is a slight difference in the error message displayed, but the result is the same. I can, however, print a test page using apsfilter. I am at my wits end to figure out what is happening. If I had any hair left, I would be pulling it out by now. ~ $ lpc status all Printer Printing Spooling Jobs Server Subserver Redirect Status/(Deb ug) [EMAIL PROTECTED] enabled enabled 0 none none ~ $ ~ $ lpr -Pscorpio /etc/printcap lpr: Connection refused ~ $ ~ $ lpr -Pseibercom /etc/printcap lpr: Connection refused ~ $ ~ $ lpr -Pseibercom.net /etc/printcap lpr: Connection refused ~ $ ~ $ lpr /etc/printcap lpr: Error - scheduler not responding! -- Gerard Seibert [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
