Trying to get a HP PSC 1315v printer/scanner working on SuSE 9.1. I'm using the hpoj (HP Office Jet) driver. The scanner part of it already works fine, but I'm trying to get the printer part of it to work, and my directions say to use CUPS web-administration interface to set up my printer, and specifically say not to use Yast (and after trying Yast before reading the directions, I can see why). The problem I am having is that my directions say that I can access CUPS web-administration interface by putting http://localhost:631
into my web browser. When I do this, my web browser (Mozilla) is saying "The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost:631." I googled about it, and found a webpage http://hpoj.sourceforge.net/hpoj-cvs...t-details.html
that said to try the following:
Problem: I couldn't access the CUPS web-administration interface.
Make sure the CUPS daemon is running (check with a command such as "ps aux | grep cups"), and start it if necessary (see above).
After (re)starting CUPS, you may need to wait a minute or two before trying to access the CUPS web-administration interface.
Check your web browser's proxy settings, and try disabling the web proxy if enabled.
Run /sbin/ifconfig and make sure the lo (loopback) interface is in the UP state and has the IP address 127.0.0.1.
Try http://127.0.0.1:631 (or whatever the loopback IP address above is) instead.
I tried all of these things, and I still can't access CUPS web-administration interface. Mozilla still just says "The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost:631."
