     TESTPRNS(1)     UNIX System V (19 November	2002)	   TESTPRNS(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  testprns - check printer name	for validity with smbd

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  testprns printername [ printcapname ]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  This tool is part of the  Samba suite.

	  testprns is a	very simple test program to determine whether
	  a given printer name is valid	for use	in a service to	be
	  provided by  smbd(8)

	  "Valid" in this context means	"can be	found in the printcap
	  specified". This program is very stupid - so stupid in fact
	  that it would	be wisest to always specify the	printcap file
	  to use.

     OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
	       The printer name	to validate.

	       Printer names are taken from the	first field in each
	       record in the printcap file, single printer names and
	       sets of aliases separated by vertical bars ("|")	are
	       recognized. Note	that no	validation or checking of the
	       printcap	syntax is done beyond that required to extract
	       the printer name. It may	be that	the print spooling
	       system is more forgiving	or less	forgiving than
	       testprns. However, if testprns finds the	printer	then
	       smbd should do so as well.

	       This is the name	of the printcap	file within which to
	       search for the given printer name.

	       If no printcap name is specified	testprns will attempt
	       to scan the printcap file name specified	at compile

     FILES    [Toc]    [Back]
	       This is usually the default printcap file to scan. See
	       printcap	(5).

     DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  If a printer is found	to be valid, the message "Printer name
	  <printername>	is valid" will be displayed.

	  If a printer is found	to be invalid, the message "Printer
	  name <printername> is	not valid" will	be displayed.

     TESTPRNS(1)     UNIX System V (19 November	2002)	   TESTPRNS(1)

	  All messages that would normally be logged during operation
	  of the Samba daemons are logged by this program to the file
	  test.log in the current directory. The program runs at
	  debuglevel 3,	so quite extensive logging information is
	  written. The log should be checked carefully for errors and

	  Other	messages are self-explanatory.

     VERSION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  This man page	is correct for version 2.2 of the Samba	suite.

     AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The original Samba software and related utilities were
	  created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by	the
	  Samba	Team as	an Open	Source project similar to the way the
	  Linux	kernel is developed.

	  The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. The
	  man page sources were	converted to YODL format (another
	  excellent piece of Open Source software, available at
	  <URL:ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/>) and updated for the
	  Samba	2.0 release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to
	  DocBook for Samba 2.2	was done by Gerald Carter
