Is there a better way to manage lpd permissions than specifying individual hosts in /etc/hosts.lpd? I have a
heterogeneous network here (there are a few Winder's machines in
addition to a bunch of Unix machines) that has a bunch o' machines
on it, all of which are listed in a local DNS server.
What I'd really like to be able to do is just say: "Allow
any machine from this local domain to connect to lpd."

The documentation for hosts.lpd doesn't help out on
format here, and the source code for lpd.c seems to confirm
that there is, indeed, no wildcarding supported.

Any other options?
I wouldn't normally chime in like this, but I want to add a "me too"

In my case it would be perfectly acceptable to eliminate all host
checking on the part of LPD, since the LPD port is firewalled off from
everything but our local network anyway.

Haven't been able to find any way to do this (or what Mark asks for)
in the docs anywhere.  Am I missing something?
