Hey there all.

For quite some time I've been noticing messages on the primary
console as well as the message log.

inetd[630]: printer/tcp: bind: Address already in use

I have cups installed and happen to notice something in the /usr/local/etc/rc.d director called I have, as the
file says, lpd_enabled/lpd_enable equal to NO inside quotes
(yep, inside rc.conf) and the darn thing still starts up.

Any ideas on fixing?

Are things "working", other than the annoying message?

Are all the messages from the same process?  And is that
process really 'inetd'?  If so, what kind of entries do
you have in /etc/inetd.conf?

Woa, thanks for the quick response.

Yep things are "working" just have the annoying messages (well I haven't had a need to print at this time). When inetd checks its configuration against what is currently running for a given port outside of inetd.

Yes, the process is really inetd. Since in the inetd.conf there is the following entry:
printer 515/tcp spooler
printer 515/udp spooler

And the wants to load lpd from /usr/local/sbin. I do have cups-lpr installed but I don't recall this issue arising from it.

I killed the lpd process and the renamed to something like Now inetd doesn't complain. Of course I don't understand what application put it there. I'm sure I checked cups and it appears to not come from that. Renaming it is just like going in to msconfig on Windows and telling not to do it. And since says put in LPD_ENABL="NO" I would expect it to work. But nope.

Since I'm not printing at this time I'll just yank out cups and clean it up and reinstall to get it to print to a Windows share.
