I am a long time user of sid.
I frequently have trouble setting up cups properly
again after an upgrade, particularly lately :).
I have a network of computers which all print to a single machine which has the printer installed on it.
I am currently able to get the computer with the printer itself to print.
However the client computers are not "discovering" the cups printer on the "server computer".
1) I have gotten the server computer to print. It is located at 192.168.100.18
To get the main computer to print
I simply made sure that
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf had the line
2) Then I tried to make it let others print to it with the lines
# Show shared printers on the local network.
# Default authentication type, when authentication is required...
# Restrict access to the server...
notice that i tried to specifically allow 192.168.1.64 cause i was worried about the
3) I can then print normally on the server machine at 192.168.100.18.
I then tried to configure the client machines.
For instance I noticed in my latest install of sid on a machine
(after a hard drive failure) left my new machine without a
file, even though cups-client was installed :).
So i created one and then i
added the line
Now I dont know what to set in cupsd.conf on this client machine.
I tried to change
but this did not work - cups would not start.
Also For some time now the kde control panel has not been able to configure the cups client machine.
