Package: kdeprint
Version: 4:3.1.1-1
Severity: normal


One problem I noticed with KDEs print subsystem and CUPS:

CUPS by default is configured to only allow access from localhost which
is a sane thing to do. KDE, however, quite often tries to access the
CUPS daemon using one of the the hosts external IP addresses, so the
requests are originating from "Hostname" instead of localhost, even
though the CUPS server is configured as localhost in the KDE printer
configuration dialog. As CUPS' (correctly) blocks these accesses, KDE
has no access to the printers ppd files and eg. the "Driver Settings" tab
will not show up in KDEs print dialog and an "IPP" report in the printer
configuration module is not possible, failing with an error message
("unknown error").

D [09/May/2003:18:00:30 +0200] AcceptClient() 13 from
D [09/May/2003:18:00:30 +0200] ReadClient() 13 GET /printers/stc640.ppd
D [09/May/2003:18:00:30 +0200] SendError() 13 code=403

A possible workaround is to add the hosts external ips to CUPS'
cupsd.conf in "Allowed From" clauses in sections KDE should be able to
access. (Note that you NEED to use the ip and not the hostname, else
CUPS still won't accept connections. However this is a seperate problem
and I'll file an additional bug if it is not already present.)
