Description pere 1999-04-26 11:20:53 UTC
When using Linux RedHat 5.2 as a client and a HP/UX 10.20
server as a printer server, no print jobs are sendt to the
printer.  The Linux lpr/lpd v0.33 does not follow the naming
convention specified by RFC 1179 ( cfA[0-9]{3}hostname ).
This makes the HP lpd to throw away the print job.
