I started getting this error after I changed the default printer from local to
printserver box thru yast2/hardware/printer gui setup.

In the forum it says tant nfs or rquotad may be using the same socket 631.

I could not find rquotod anywhere. I see nfs is starting before cups in
I found nfs was always starting before cups when everything was working ok
(before yast2 change).

Where and how  do i change the sequence of nfs and cups starting?

Where to find rquotad?

I have spent 4 days in cups and finding it diffcult to define a local lj hp 6p
and another same model printer attached to asante cable router printer port (in
RH and	w2k it workes by defining as lpr and q as lp).

Running SuSe 9.1 pro and upto date on patches.

Thanks for helping a newbie.
I have to fix this problem to keep my spirit (in CUPS) up!
