hosts.lpd – trusted hosts that may use local print services



The hosts.lpd file contains a list of hostnames or IP addresses that are allowed to use your local print services. List every hostname or IP address on a line itself.

If you want to allow access for any and all host, you can usually use the NIS netgroups feature to do this by adding a line with a single ‘+’ character.
