suse 9.1 printing to cups ipp network printer
 
Hello. I have a new Suse 9.1 professional installation and would like to get it to print over my network.

The printer is on a (redhat 9.0) linux server, set up as a cups printer, and I already have two red hat linux computers using this printer. I set them up to call
ipp://192.168.1.106/printers/DirectBrother
using the redhat-config-printer tool, and they are both able to print.

I would like to do the same from my new suse 9.1 professional computer, but I'm having some problems. I tried yast2:
Hardeware > Printer > CUPS server
put in 192.168.1.106 as the server name, and then did a "test remote IPP access", and yast2 said that I was able to access it. I then put in "/printers/DirectBrother" as the default queue. yast2 set up was all done and successful.

Then I went into
Utilities > Printing > Printing Manager
and tried to use the kde printing manager to configure it, but it did not work. The lower right hand corner said "Connected to 192.168.1.106:631" but when it was trying to initialize printers, it said "Unable to retrieve the printer list. Connection to cups server failed."

I have also tried using "localhost:631" as my server in yast2 and started a cupsd on my suse computer, but got the same message from the kde printing manager.

Should I not be using the kde printing manager to add printers after setting up with yast2? If not, what should I be doing to add a printer so that I can use it in kde?
