No :force_localhost@ don't work! It don't give the desired effect. It
prints directly, without using the local spool. I want to print via
the spool.

Turning off force_localhost is not the solution to this problem!

Can you please specify the files you suggest that I read!
/usr/share/doc/lprng/README.Debian don't have any information about
printing from a chroot via a local spool. Neither do
/usr/share/doc/lprng-doc/README.gz . And I can't find this in
/usr/share/doc/lprng-doc/LPRng-Reference.html or
/usr/share/doc/lprng-doc/Cookbook.pdf.gz .
