I have a desktop computer with network card and a Canon IP4000R printer hooked directly to desktop network card. The USB port from the printer I use to plug into my Laptop which is running Ubuntu Dapper. Obviously a very tiny network. This works good in windows for me and the laptop with Ubuntu and Turbo print driver everything works fine.
I am trying to setp my CUPS (IPP) with Turboprint driver but I don't know what to put in Path.
My Desktop IP adress is 192.168.0.1
My printer IP address is 192.168.0.2
My printer Canon IP4000R
I can ping printer IP address no problems
ping -c 4 192.168.0.2
PING 192.168.0.2 (192.168.0.2) 56(84) bytes of data.

I seem to be able to set printer up fine but when I come to print it keeps saying printer is busy.
I have tried using xtpsetup to add printer, the webbrowser and going to cups administration set up with localhost:631, and also Add printer under Fedora KDE printer setup. I always get to print test page and it says printer busy.
With everything I am reading I seem to have conflicting views in what I should put in for the ipp printer path. I'm sure I am not putting this in correctly.
I have tried
ipp://192.168.0.1/printer/canon (I dont know what I am meant to put there for printer name? /printer/canon or where do I get that path or queue from).
When I use cups administration on localhost 631 and add printer I dont know what to add for Location and I always end up with a URI like below with the 631 port attached.Which doesnt work at all.
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs.
Device URI: http://192.168.0.2:631
Any help muchly appreciated for this newbie in getting my very simple network printer to run.
