Yes, I think the problem is in CUPS.
The Unix Printing System service on w2k3 is enabled, and the
/etc/printcap is ok (i followed the instructions on the books).
I created a "test" plain text file
> lp test
Warning: no daemon present
Rank Owner Job Files Total Size
3rd <user> 9 test 5 bytes
but the print server doesn't receive any input.
This is my /etc/printcap configuration:
> cat /etc/printcap
where <host-name> is replaced with the effective name, which is mapped
