Rock solid. *Very* configurable. Highly recommended.
Description from the site:
The LPRng software is an enhanced, extended, and portable
implementation of the Berkeley LPR print spooler functionality. While
providing the same interface and meeting RFC1179 requirements, the
implementation is completely new and provides support for the
following features: lightweight (no databases needed) lpr, lpc, and
lprm programs; dynamic redirection of print queues; automatic job
holding; highly verbose diagnostics; multiple printers serving a
single queue; client programs do not need to run SUID root; greatly
enhanced security checks; and a greatly improved permission and
The source software compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX
systems, and is compatible with other print spoolers and network
printers that use the LPR interface and meet RFC1179 requirements.
