Re: Cannot print from diskless-workstations

This would be useful to know, to figure out if the problem is with a
read-only directory on the diskless workstation, or with the
communication between tjener and the clients.

I doubt this, as the default for a CUPS client is to see all announced

The way CUPS work, one set up a printer on one machine, and the
existence of this printer is broadcasted on the local network.
Clients pick up these printeres automatically and show them to the
user.  So no special setup should be needed on the clients.

Could it be that the network equipment is blocking the broadcast
traffic?  Or could it be that CUPS on the client now need a new and
unknown directory to be writable during operation?
Happy hacking
