Time: 2:00pm - 2:30pm

Would you like to be able to run 2000 print queues & 800 printers on a 166 Mhz Pentium with FreeBSD? You can with LPRng! The LPRng software is an enhanced, extended and portable implementation of the Berkeley LPR print spooler functionality. While providing the same interface and meeting RFC1179 requirements, the implementation is completely new and provides support for the following features: lightweight (no databases needed) lpr, lpc, and lprm programs; dynamic redirection of print queues; automatic job holding; highly verbose diagnostics; multiple printers serving a single queue; client programs do not need to run SUID root; greatly enhanced security checks; and a greatly improved permission and authorization mechanism. This session will introduce you to the capabilities of LPRng.
