[TriLUG] Securing Lpd (TCP Port 515)
Fri, 14 Jun 2002 09:17:45 -0400
Does anyone have any good recommendations on securing Lpd (Line Printer
Daemon)? Being paranoid as I am, I only start lpd right before I have
to print something, then shut it off immediately after I've finished
printing. Is there a way to set lpd to *not* listen for connections?
Why does it have to run as a daemon that makes connections on port 515?
There should be a way to print without running the daemon, or run the
daemon in a mode where it does not open a network socket. Any ideas?
