Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have searched high and low and tried what must be every conceivable cupsd.conf arrangement and variable but I cannot get my portable running PCLinuxOS to print to my Canon printer attached to my Fedora 5 desktop.
I can see the printer from the client and it will send a print file to it with no error message coming back but the access log in the cups interface - localhost:631 - just has the following line repeated as the client tries to print - client lan address 10.0.0.5
This is repeated every 30 secs and the 403 error is access denied I believe.
I can print locally and also from 2 other portables running XP through both the lan and the wireless network by using the protocol "http://10.0.0.1:631/printers/Canon" with no problem.
So why the f*ck wont my linux portable print to my linux controlled cups server - I have spent days on this and am really pissed !
Here is my cupsd.conf
Deny From All
Allow From 127.0.0.1
Allow from All
BrowseAllow from @LOCAL
OK Gurus where to now ? Why is cups such a sh*t to get configured, it should be easy and the documentation sucks.
Location: Somewhere inside 9.9 million sq. km. Canada
Distribution: Slackware 14.1
It looks to me like you have a deney=all and allow only localhost, 127.0.0.1. The XP boxes are working because they go through samba, and then to the localhost. Add a line to allow 10.0.0.5 or comment out the deny all and try it.
I have found cups client to cups server is very easy to get working, it worked for me from Knoppix on a lapytop to my Mandriva server first try.
Also look to see it you have a /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow files that may be blocking things.
