Error message printing to Windows on port 515


We have an application which runs on Windows 2000 that responds to prrint requests by anyone using RFC1179 protocol
on port 515.

We are getting an error message when submitting print requests
from Sun Solaris 9.

"Windows 2000 LPD Server Error: Specified printer does not exist"
The printer was set up using the lpsystem -t bsd remotehost
command, followed by lpadmin -p printername remotehost

Can anyone help with this message please.

rlpdaemon - daemon for queuing, displaying, removing and altering remote spool requests and writing remote messages SYNOPSIS
is a LP daemon (spool area handler) for remote spool requests. is normally invoked at boot time from the file or started by inetd(1M), when necessary. runs on a system that receives requests to be printed. transfers files to the spooling area, displays the queue, removes jobs from the queue, or alters jobs in the queue. is also used as a server process to write a message on the user's terminal, upon receiving a request from a remote system. Options Prevent from remaining after a request is processed. This is required if is started from inetd(1M). When is invoked with this option, error messages and valid requests received from the network are logged to either or logfile specified with option. Cause to log error messages and valid requests received from the network to the file This can be useful for debugging. Change the file used for writing error messages and valid requests received from the network to the file to logfile. When is started by inetd(1M), access control is provided via the file to allow or prevent a host from making requests. When is not started by inetd(1M), all requests must come from one of the machines listed in the file or When is used for access, the user name should be The following entry should exist in for remote spooling: printer 515/tcp spooler Control File Processing The subsystem expects that the control file associated with each request contain the datafile line entry (starting with a lower case let- ter) indicating the file to be printed, and an associated unlink datafile entry (U entry). The actual filename (N entry) for this datafile line entry can be above or below the datafile line entry. If multiple copies of a file has to be printed, for example copies, then the datafile line entry should be repeated times in succession. may reorder or insert the U entries in the control file such that the datafile line entry and the U entry will be in succession for each file to be printed. EXAMPLES
To start from invoke the command: To start from the following line should be included in the file WARNINGS
If the remote system is the same as the local system and was not started by inetd(1M), the local system name be included in file AUTHOR
