Re: Printer Sharing (CUPS)

Well it works with Windows XP machines very well. I need to know how can I configure it to work with my Linux box too. By the way, my firewall on both Ubuntu and Debian as server is set to "Allow Policy" not there is no problem with its ports. It is absolutely safe since this network is behind a statefull firewall.

Hi all,

I have a small network with four XP machines and one Linux (Ubuntu) 
which are all connected to a Debian server. My Debian server is supposed 
to act as a Printer Server. I have installed SAMBA and have configured 
it with SWAT and now all printers connected to the server is shared 
between Windows XP machines perfectly. Now the problem is that I can not 
share printers for my Linux system. I have also used "lpadmin" on Debian 
server like this:

lpadmin -p MyPrinter -u allow:UbuntuUser

but I can not send any test page from my Ubuntu machine. Can anybody 
give my any clue about how printers can be shared in a network of Linux 

You don't need samba.  You just need CUPS' port (631) to be allowed
through the firewall (if applicable).  In windows, you can tell it to
use IPP for the protocol and then you give it the ip address or hostname
of the machine and the name of the printer as you installed it in CUPS.
