Enable secure ports for CUPS printing
Authored by: BMarsh on Nov 27, '03 11:49:58AM

I read about this somewhere else, Apple hadn't specifically changed this behaviour... they used a newer version of CUPS, and in CUPS this behaviour of LPD had changed... due to a few limits of the old way of working...

by using previously "trusted" or low-numbered ports (Reserved) LPD was limited to 11 printers, this behaviour I believe is actually changed in newer LPD implimentations in general... although they really should have come up with a method of doing both systems while people transition.

Just though I'd provide some background... if I can find the URL from the person who helps maintain CUPS commenting on this, I will be sure to add that to the comments here.
