    Question Sco Openserver Starting TCP/IP Services

    Hi all,

    I have a customer whose sco unix server wasnt power off correctly and when booting it up I noticed that the boot up takes a while to finish the " Starting TCP services: snmpd routed lpd". after that the server is ready for login, but you cannot ping anything from the server (apart from the local IP) or ping the server from anywhere on the network.

    any ideas would be much appreciated.

    lpd is the line printer daemon (spool area handler) and is normally invoked at boot time from the /etc/rc2.d/S85tcp file which is an rc2(ADM) startup script.

    Try to stop this service in boot time.
