In a bind about named and network printing.
I have been playing with my local networks 'named' and finally got it
working more or less the way I think it should. Evidence for this is
that I can ping <local machine name> and it returns the fully qualified
machine name plus the ping responces. This works on all machines except
the server 'named' is actually running on. Where the ping goes off
along the cable modem never to resolve (my network is strictly a local
affair). So far so good.
What is really causing me to scratch my head is that suddenly ( at the
same time ) the printer located on my server (the same server which
runs named) no longer works for print jobs across the network. The
print jobs are all queued on my debian machine but never get printed on
my redhat server.
I am pretty sure it is related to my tinkerings but just can't see
where the problem lies. Any suggestions?
