This may depend on which printing system you have on the linux box. A lot
of people seem to be using cups, about which I know nothing.
I use lprng. There is a file called lpd.perms, which hangs out in /etc on my
system. This is the most convoluted, unix like configuration file I have
ever seen. But, it is flexible. See man lpd.perms for info about it.
If you don't like the man pager, then:
man -t lpd.perms > junk.ps
ps2pdf junk.ps junk.pdf
To make everything work as expected, without any particular security or
usage limitation, I just put:
DEFAULT ACCEPT as the first and only line in my lpd.perms file.
