Setup CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) Server and Client in Debian

Posted 09-23-2007 at 02:26 AM by sridhar11

The Common UNIX Printing SystemTM, or CUPS, is the software you use to print from applications like the web browser you are using to read this page. It converts the page descriptions produced by your application (put a paragraph here, draw a line there, and so forth) into something your printer can understand and then sends the information to the printer for printing.

Mount a remote file system through ssh Using sshfs

Posted 09-16-2007 at 02:30 AM by sridhar11

If you want to access a remote file system through ssh you need to install sshfs.sshfs is a filesystem client based on the SSH File Transfer Protocol. Since most SSH servers already support this protocol it is very easy to set up: i.e. on the server side there’s nothing to do. On the client side mounting the file system is as easy as logging into the server with
ssh.
