Hello,

I have recently re-installed Red Hat 7.1 on my machine.
Everything works fine, except for printing.  A HP
LaserJet 4550 Colour printer is connect to my machine, via parallel
port.  I also use a  remote laser printer (HP Laserjet 4050) for
printing.  However, after configuring the printers in the printtool, I
get the following error message, after saving the printing configuration
and restarting lpd, selecting a Test page for printing:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Status Information:
 sending job 'root at sindhu+626' to lasercolour at localhost
 connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
 cannot open connection to localhost - Connection timed out
Make sure LPD server is running on the server

================================================================

 Status Information:
 sending job 'root at sindhu+520' to laser4 at localhost
 connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
 cannot open connection to localhost - Connection timed out
Make sure LPD server is running on the server
Status Information:

Any solutions?
