Hi all,

I`ve setup a 5.1RELEASE box and want to configure my printer.

$ pkg_info | grep -i lprng

$ dmesg | grep lpt
lpt0: <Printer> on ppbus0
lpt0: Interrupt-driven port

I get some output when I lptest > /dev/lpt0.

$ grep -v '#' /etc/printcap
:cm=Paralell Port Printer
:lprngtooloptions=FILTERTYPE="IFHP" \
IFHP_OPTIONS="status,sync,pagecount,waitend" PRINTERDB_ENTRY="pcl_gs"

$ lpq -a
Printer '[EMAIL PROTECTED]' - no network support for 'lpq' operation

Print jobs are stalled in /var/spool/lp. there seems to be a
permission problem as well:

$ checkpc -P lp
Warning - lp: cannot open lp device '/dev/lpt0' - Permission denied

$ ls -al /dev/lpt0
crw-------  1 root  wheel   16,   0 Sep  8 21:22 /dev/lpt0

Are there any hints? Googleing the error messages didn't create any
output for me :-(

Thanks in advance
