Hi Allan,
first of all many thanks for your excellent explanation. 
Unfortunately, removing /dev/printer and killing /restarting lpd does not
create a printer socket. Would a reboot be more helpful? Then I'd have to
wait until Saturday, because the machine acts as an application server for
our HP-UNIX-machines :-(

Or should I re-install the lpd-package? What do you think?

Thanks a lot
