In Fedora Core 6, when from the Firefox browser I enter: http://localhost:631
instead of seeing the expected cups page, "nothing happens" Firefox shows a moving circular arrow like its trying to connect, but no error message, and no timeout (it probably would eventually)
This worked at one time, so I have done "something" to kill it. Searched in linuxquestions and also Googled localhost:631 and found no hits on this. I did find posts with these diagostic commands saying both should show tcp 0.0.0.0:631
netstat -nl | grep 631 and netstat -pan | grep tcp
They both show "udp" instead of "tcp", viz: udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:631
Am guessing this is the problem. Can anyone suggest corrective action to get "tcp" to replace "udp"?
localhost 127.0.0.1 is in the /etc/hosts file and I am able to use turboprint to print to my canon i950 printer.
