Found the following on SunSolve - hope it helps:

After booting a system, trying to print gives an error message
as follows :

% lpr /etc/motd
lpr: connect: No such file or directory
jobs queued, but cannot start daemon.

% lpq
Warning: no daemon present
Rank Owner Job Files Total Size
1st ...

The /usr/lib/lpd process must be manually started in order for
printing to work successfully.
Problem Solution Top

Check the /etc/rc file and make sure the following section
is not commented out :

#if [ -f /usr/lib/lpd ]; then
# rm -f /dev/printer /var/spool/lpd.lock
# /usr/lib/lpd; echo -n ' printer'

If it is, uncomment this section in the /etc/rc file, and the
lpd daemon will automatically be started at boot-up time :

if [ -f /usr/lib/lpd ]; then
rm -f /dev/printer /var/spool/lpd.lock
/usr/lib/lpd; echo -n ' printer'
