Installing printer on PMac 8600

Hi all,

I've just succeeded in installing the base-system of Debian 2.2.20 on my
PowerMac 8600/250. The modem on /dev/ttyS0 is working fine and now I'm
trying to get my printer running.

It's an Apple Personal Laserwriter 320 and connected to the printerport,
assuming it's /dev/ttyS1.

I use LPRng (3.8.10-1.2) and apsfilter (7.2.2-3).

lp <file> becomes visable in the queue with status:

Cannot open '/dev/ttyS1' - Permission denied, attempt 1, sleeping 10 at

lp as root and user gives the same result.

Any suggestions or help is welcome.


ps. Printing on MacOS 8.6 works fine.
