If you have active firewalls on your machines, make sure that IPP is allowed in both directions.

The firewall is WRT54GL.


Yes. On the client OS's you should see incoming packets of about 189 bytes every 30 secs. gkrellm shows these, or if you run wireshark, you should see these cups broadcasts from the machine with the printer attached.

there's a bit of output from netstat -a below which shows cups listening on the client machine, which happens to be Archlinux at the moment.

Active UNIX domain sockets (servers and established)

Or do even client computers need the cups server package?

Yes. I've just looked at that on Archlinux. Trying to print with the cups

And Nigel Henry says no.  Infinite are the arguments of mages...

Don't know if any of the above helps.

It does.
