remote printer configuration - cups
I have a printer which runs on a network connection.
I scanned for ports and found ports associated with lpd (515), cups (631),
and jetdirect (9100?) and was trying to configure a cups client.
I installed the following packages:
I tried to set the /etc/cups/client.conf file to include the IP address for
the printer. That didn't work.
I tried to use foomatic-configure and it complained that there was no
printer.conf file. This seems to show up under the cupsys package, but
installing that does nothing for me.
So I tried configuring it a direct configuration:
foomatic-configure -s cups -n remoteraw -c socket://192.168.0.100:631/
foomatic-configure -s cups -D -n remoteraw
And nothing, so I removed it and tried:
foomatic-configure -s direct -n remoteraw -c socket://192.168.0.100:631/
foomatic-configure -s direct -D -n remoteraw
On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog.
