Administering Printers by Using the RFC-1179 Printing Protocol (Task Map)

Table 6-2 Administering Printers by Using the RFC–1179 Printing Protocol: Task Map

Task

Description

For Instructions

Use the RFC-1179 protocol to cascade print requests.

Use this procedure to remove the dependency on the printer scheduler service, if the print host is used to cascade print requests.

How to Use the RFC-1179 Protocol Listener to Cascade Print Requests

Share printers when the RFC-1179 printing protocol is in use.

Printer sharing when the RFC-1179 printing protocol is in use, is accomplished by enabling and disabling the network listening service.

Enabling and Disabling Printing Services (Task Map)

How to Use the RFC-1179 Protocol Listener to Cascade Print Requests

The RFC-1179 protocol listener is represented by the FMRI, svc:/application/print/rfc1179 (in.lpd). By default, this FMRI is dependent on the print scheduler service, svc:/application/print/server, and will only run if the host is running the print scheduler service.

Normally, the RFC-1179 protocol listener is not needed when the print scheduler is not running. However, if the host is used to cascade print requests, the dependency on the print scheduler service should be removed.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Remove the dependency on the print scheduler service.
    # cat <<EOF | svccfg > select application/print/rfc1179 > delpg lpsched > end > EOF
  3. After you have removed the dependency, run the following command for the changes to take effect immediately:
    # svcadm refresh application/print/rfc1179
